12/15 is bigger than 4/10 or 4/5 is bigger than 2/5

no because 5 over 6 is closer to a whole than 5 over 12

5/12 is (108 and 1/3)% bigger than 1/5 .another way of telling what is bigger is to covert them to decimal form (at least I think it is easier)1/5 = .205/12=.416 (repeating 6)so 5/12 (.416) is bigger then 1/5 (.20)

No, it is bigger than both of them.

7/12 is less then 5/8. 7/12=.583333333333333.. . . . . .. 5/8=.625 .625>.5833333333. . . . . . . . . . .

You just need to get a common denominator and then you can simply compare them. 100 is a common denominator of 5 and 100. so change 1/5 to 20/100 by multiplying 1/5 by 20/20. 1/5=20/100 and now the question becomes... is 20/100 bigger than 12/100 no, 20 hundredths is bigger than 12 hundredths 1 over 5 is not bigger than 12 over 100

12/5 = 2.4 3.6 is bigger than that.
