Best Answer

Three fifths is larger than two fifths. In fractions, if the bottom numbers (denominators) are the same, then the fraction with the larger top number (numerator) is larger.

Look at it another way. Lets say there is one cake, and we cut the cake into 5 equal pieces. So each piece is 1/5. Now if you were very hungry, would you rather have two slices (2/5) or three (3/5)?
