One whole and two fifths

I believe the answer is ; one and three fifths. Thanks!

3.4 or three and two fifths

No it is not.

two thirds is greater because 0.6=three fifths so three fifths and two thirds could be simplified into nine fifteenths and two thirds could be simplified into ten fifteenths so ten is greater than nine so it is two thirds.

One-third is the same as five-fifteenths. Two-fifths is the same as six-fifteenths. Five-fifteenths plus six-fifteenths is eleven-fifteenths. One, or fifteen-fifteenths, minus eleven-fifteenths is four-fifteenths.

It is the same as: 7/5 minus 3/5 = 4/5

6+(3/5)
