Make them equivalent fractions with the same denominator then compare the numerators:
2/5 = 2x3/5x3 = 6/15
1/3 = 1x5/3x5 = 5/15
Two fifths is larger than one third as two fifths is equivalent to six fifteenths whereas one third is only equivalent to five fifteenths which is smaller than six fifteenths.
Three fifths is larger.
(1/3) of (3/5) = 1/5
let say for example you have 7 fifths. There are 5 fifths in a whole. You still have two fifths remaining and therefore the fraction becomes 1 and 2 fifths (1 2/5).
1/3 is the same as 5/15 by multiplying the numerator and the denominator by 5 2/5 is the same as 6/15 by multiplying the numerator and the denominator by 3 6/15 is larger than 5/15 so 2/5 is larger than 1/3. 2/5 is larger than 1/3.
Seven fifths is written as an improper fraction- one where the numerator is larger than the denominator- as 7/5. It is written as a mixed number- a number with an integer and a fraction- as 1 and 2/5.
1 and 4 fifths divided by 1 third = 52/5
It is 1.
2/5 is 20% more than 1/3 .
No. If you convert both to 15ths, 2/5 is 6/15, while 1/3 is 5/15. So 2/5 is larger. Another way to tell which fraction is larger is to cross-multiply. The fraction with the numerator which gives the larger product when multiplied by the other denominator is the larger one. So if you multiply the 2 from 2/5 with the 3 from 1/3, you get 6. If you multiply the 1 from 1/3 with the 5 from 2/5, you get five. So 6 is larger than 5, meaning that 2/5 is larger.
1/2 and 4/5 is the same as 5/10 and 8/10 and so the fraction needed is 6/10 or 7/10
It is 1.2
Two fifths minus one third is 1/15.
Six fifths is a fraction and is equal to six fifths. Also, (6k/5k) is equal to six fifths for any k not equal to 0.
well, 1 third is the same as 2 sixths which is less than 2 fifths. =)
5 and 1 third divided by 2 and 2 fifths = 22/9
Three fifths is larger than two fifths. In fractions, if the bottom numbers (denominators) are the same, then the fraction with the larger top number (numerator) is larger. Look at it another way. Lets say there is one cake, and we cut the cake into 5 equal pieces. So each piece is 1/5. Now if you were very hungry, would you rather have two slices (2/5) or three (3/5)?
1.4 as a fraction equals 7/5 (seven fifths), or as a mixed number 1 2/5 (one and two fifths).
9/5, an improper fraction that simplifies to 1 4/5
Expressed as a proper fraction in its simplest form, 11/15 - 2/5 = 1/3 or one third.
A fraction can be larger than 1, for example, 4/2 is a fraction (which can be simplified to 2). Only a fraction that is larger than 1, multiplied by another number gives you a larger number.
33 and 1 third = 33 1/3 or 100/3 in fraction
