No, because one half is equal to 50% and three fifths is equal to 60%. This is because five times twenty is 100, (for one half, this is fifty times TWO) so then, if you multiply the denominator, you absolutely positively have to multiply the numerator. One half of five is 2.5, so, of course, 3 is larger than 2.5. Thus, 2/5 IS larger than one half.
