When you see those fractions on paper and you read them, you say "two fifths" and "three fifths". When you hear that, you immediately realize that three of anything is always greater than two of the same thing.

2/3 is greater than 1/3. The two fractions have the same denominator, therefore the greater their numerator the greater is its value.. Also, 2/3 = 0.6667 while 1/3 = 0.3333.

You can write any two-digit decimal as a fraction by putting it over 100 but it's an unnecessary step. 0.39 is greater than 0.27 39/100 is greater than 27/100

It need not be. The numbers 1/2 and (-1/2) are both fractions less than 1 but their quotient is -1, which is less than both the fractions.

A fraction is greater than one if the the top number (numerator) is greater than the lower number (denominator).

Those two fractions are equivalent.

No, it is not.

That only happens if they're both improper fractions, i.e. greater than ' 1 '.

The product is not always greater than 1.

Yes. Consider two negative fractions. Since they are negative, both are less than 1. But their product is positive and so greater than either.

It is greater as for example 3/4 divided by 1/4 is equal to 3

There are infinitely many fractions greater than two fifths; the most obvious answer would be three fifths. A half is also greater than two fifths.

That is correct.

if you mean multiplying something by a fraction where the numerator is smaller than the denominator then yes.

True...apex:)!
