No 8/10 is equivalent to 4/5 not 2/3. You can either convert to decimal (divide on a calculator, or just (for these particular fractions) recognize what they are.

8/10 = 0.80000 and 2/3 = 0.66666..... So 8/10 is bigger.

To compare them as fractions, you need to find a common denominator, then compare the numerators. If you keep it as 8/10, rather than simplifying first then the common denominator is 30.

8/10 = 24/30 and 2/3 = 20/30, so 24 > 20 and 8/10 is bigger (they are not equal).

Or simplify first: 4/5 and 2/3. Common denominator is 15: 4/5 = 12/15, and 2/3 = 10/15. 12 > 10, so 12/15 is bigger (they are not equal).
