Now you have 5 fifteenths and 6 fifteenths. 5 fifteenths belongs to 1 third and 6 fifteenths belongs to 2 fifths. So now you can see that 2 FIFTHS is BIGGER than 1 third. ==================================== Or you could just convert the fractions into decimal form and see which one is bigger. 1/3 = 0.3333 2/5 = 0.4 <=== This one is bigger than 0.3333.
