Six

Convert them to the same denominator and the answer to your question will be immediately apparent (assuming you know that six is less than seven).

Because six of anything is greater than five of the same thing and less than seven of them. Here you're talking about eighths, but it's equally true of songs, stars, or cows.

6/15 is 0.4 2/3 is 0.66 and so on 0.4 is less than 0.66

Previous answer:"one over three is greater than three over six"This is absolutely wrong. 3/6 is equal to 1/2. One half is greater than one third.
