Remember, when multiplying fractions you multiply the numerator of the first fraction by the numerator of the second fraction and then multiply the denominator of the first fraction by the denominator of the second. Thus 1/3 x 1/4 = 1/12.
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.
one third is larger than one fifth
One quarter (25%) is less than 2/3 (66%).
No, a third isn't half and half again, that would be a quarter. A third is to divide the object into 3 equal parts. Remember the cardinal rule of fractions, divide the number by the denominator( bottom number of the fraction UNDER the fraction line) and times by the numerator( top number of the fraction ABOVE the fraction line). For example, you need to get 2/6 of 24. Divide 24 by 6 = 4, X 2 = 8 Hope this helps!
