Need common denominator to make positively sure. 40 looks good.

4*11/4*10

= 44/40

--------------

5*7/5*8

= 35/40

----------------

11/10, when given the common denominator is only 4 numbers away from (40/40 ) 1. while 7/8, when given the common denominator is 5 numbers away from that form of 1

so,

11/10 is closer to 1

Yes, seven eighths is greater than five tenths. Five tenths, or one half, expressed in eighths would be four eighths. Since seven is greater than four, seven eighths is greater than four eighths (or five tenths). One easy way to know is use a calculator and do the division (seven divided by eight, and five divided by ten); in decimal form the higher value may be more quickly apparent when compared.
