How many sixths are the same as three eights?

None. Three eighths in decimal form is .375 . You obtain the decimal form of a fraction by dividing the numerator (3) by the denominator (8). For one fraction to be equivalent, or "the same" as another, it needs to be exactly the same in decimal form as the other. Two sixths is .333 in decimal form, which is less than .375, meaning the answer is more than two sixths. Three sixths is .500, which is higher than .375, meaning the answer is less than three sixths. So the equivalent of three eighths in sixths lies somewhere in between two sixths and three sixths, but there is no exact number of sixths that is the equivalent of three eighths. To illustrate how a successful fractional equivalent would look, ask how many sixteenths are the same as three eighths. Five sixteenths is .313, less than .375, and six sixteenths is .375 exactly. You recall that three eighths is also .375. Therefore, you can conclude that six sixteenths is equivalent, or the same as, three eighths.
