three sixths

Seven eights is slightly larger then five sixths.

Yes.

No,

seven sixths

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.

131/24

five eighths

The answer is 1 5/24.

Three eighths is slightly larger

No, three eighths is larger than one fourth. One fourth is equal to two eighths, and is one eighth smaller than three eighths.

Three fifths is larger than three eighths

no

3/6. 3/6 reduces to 1/2 while 2/8 reduces to 1/4.

five sixths

no three fourths is more close to a whole. and three eighths is less to a whole than three fourths.so the answer is NO, three eights is not larger than three fourths.

Three sixths is a half, which would be the same as four eighths

No, three fourths is the same as six eighths which is larger than five eighths

3/6 is the same as 4/8. it's a half

no

No

Four eighths ( 4/8 ) is the same amount as three sixths ( 3/6 ). Both of them are the same amount as one half ( 1/2 ).

ten sixteenths, fifteen twenty-fourths, and twenty thirty sixths =)

(3/8) is 12.5% bigger than (2/6).
