5 over 8 is bigger (1/8 bigger)

1/2 and 5/8 cross multiply and 8 x 1 is 8 and then 2 x 5 is 10 so 5/8 is bigger and 4/8 is equal to 1/2

5/8 is bigger than 1/2 which is equivalent to 4/8

2/8 is bigger than 1/5 or 0.25 is bigger than 0.2

5/8 is larger. Look at the measurements, which fraction is closer to 1? think of 1/4 as 2/8 and 2/8 is less than 5/8

1/5 An eighth piece is smaller *REMEMBER: The bigger to bottem number the smaller it is.*

Yes 1/2 = 4/8 so 5/8 is 1/8 bigger than 4/8

Well, since there are 4 quarts in 1 gallon, and there would be 8 quarts in 2 gallons, 2 gallons is bigger than 5 quarts.

(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5

1/2 or 4/51 x 5 or 2 x 45 < 8So that 1/2 < 4/5.

(5/8) - (1/2) is equivalent to (5/8) - (4/8) which equals (1/8) however, [(5/8)-1]/2 = (-3/16) and [5/(8-1)]/2 = (5/14) and 5/[(8-1)/2] = (10/7) and 5/[8-(1/2)] = (10/15)

4/5 of 5/8 = 4/5 x 5/8 = 4/8 x 5/5 = 1/2 x 1 = 1/2

0.625 = 5/8, 0.5 = 1/2 or 4/8...

they are the SAME!!! both equal 1/2

Point 5 = 0.5 and is less than 1 so 8 is bigger

assuming fractions 4/5 and 1/2 meant, not numbers 45 and 12 4/5 x 2/2 = 8/10 1/2 x 5/5 = 5/10 so yes 4/5 is bigger

2/5 = 16/40 5/8 = 25/40 5/8 is bigger than 2/5.

(5/8) / (1/4) = (5/8) * (4/1) = 20/8 = 2 and 1/2

5/8 is bigger. A simple method to see why is as follows: 5/8 > 4/8 = 1/2 7/15 < 7/14 = 1/2 So 7/15 < 1/2 < 5/8. You could, of course, rename both fractions to their common denominator, 120, and do lots of calculations before coming to the same conclusion.

2 / 3 = 0.667, 5 / 8 = 0.625

5/8 * 1/2 = 5/16 5/8 * 1/2 = 5/16 5/8 * 1/2 = 5/16 5/8 * 1/2 = 5/16

Yes 5/8 is greater than 1/2 which is made up of only 4/8

5/8 is bigger than 1/4 because if you express these as decimals: 5/8 = 0.6251/4 = 0.25

1/2 + 5/8 = 4/8 + 5/8 = 9/8 = 1 1/8
