It appears to be a complex fraction. Without some grouping symbols to explain which part of the larger fraction (numerator or denominator) has the fraction in it there is no way to simplify it.

The answer includes an infinite number of fractions, but the simple way to get a larger fraction is to increase the size of the numerator, or decrease the size of the denominator, so 3/7 is larger than 2/7, and 2/6 (which reduces to 1/3) is larger than 2/7.

11 over 12 is larger

3/2 is a fraction.

The improper fraction will be * 8/3 * OR * 8 over 3 *

Yes because 3 over 5 is equal to 6 over 10 s

3/6 is a fraction between 1/3 and 2/3.

2/3 is equivalent to 4/6 as a fraction

6 over 2 as a fraction = 3/1

5/8

2/3 is larger

2 over 3

2/3 is a proper fraction.8/2 is an improper fraction.

One half. Put them into like denominators and you will see (1/2)* 3/3 = 3/6 vs (1/3)* 2/2 = 2/6. Three sixths is large than two sixths therefore one half is larger

7 and 2/3 as an improper fraction is 23/3

3 and 2/3 as an improper fraction is 11/3

2/3

The equivalent fraction of 2/3 is 4/6

No, 3 over 8 is larger

No.

If you mean: 126 and 2/3 then it is 380/3 as an improper fraction

3/3

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.
