Mainly because it is equal to 60% .

3/5 ÷ 7/12 = 36/35 or 11/35

6 3/5 / (7/8) = (33/5) / (7/8) = (33/5) * (8/7) = 264/35 = 7 19/35

35/5 is equal to the whole number 7.

5 over 7 is greater than 3 over five. You have to find a common denominator. The common denominator is 35 so 5 over 7 would become 25 over 35 and 3 over 5 would become 21 over 35. 25/35 > 21/35 = 5/7 > 3/5

No - expressed as a proper fraction in its simplest form, by dividing the numerator and denominator by 7, 21/35 is equal to 3/5 or three fifths.

(3/7) - (2/5) = (15/35) - (14/35) = 1/35

7/35 = 1/5 in simplest form

3/5-3/7=(3*7)/(5*7)-(3*5)/(7*5)=21/35-15/35=6/35

The common denominator here is 35. 3/5+5/7 is 21/35+25/35. This is 46/35 or 1 and 11/35.

Because you can divide both 15 and 35 by 5. Equivalent fractions are just multiples. 3/7 6/14 9/21 12/28 15/35

It is: 3/5+5/7 = 46/35 and half way is 23/35
