three-quarters of 3-down
it is three fourths * * * * * No it is not. 12/3 = 5/3 and its reciprocal is 3/5
Two thirds are greater than three fifths.In order to answer this we have to convert both fractions into a common form to see which is bigger. To do this:* multiply the denominator (the number at the bottom of a fraction) of each fraction together to get a new 'common' denominator.* divide the new common denominator by the old denominator and multiply the result by the numerator (the number at the top) of the fraction you are converting to get a new numerator.So if we do this our common denominator is 15 (3 times 5). We can then convert two thirds in to fifteenths by dividing 15 by 3 (=5) and multiplying by 2 (=10). Thus 2/3 = 10/15.When we do this for three fifths we get: 15 divided by 5 times 3 = 9.Thus 3/5 equals 9/15.Therefore 2/3 is greater than 3/5 as 10/15 is greater than 9/15.
Peggy had three times as many quarters as nickels. She had $1.60 in all. How many nickels and how many quarters did she have?
no. they are equal
Two thirds is greater than three fifths.
Five sixths is the bigger fraction.
one twelfth (1/12)
Three thirds is an integer, not a fraction.
The two fractions are both equivalent to each other.
2/3 is bigger than 1/3
One. As three quarters of twelve is 9, and two thirds of twelve is 8. :-)
Three quarters is bigger. Here's the math:To evaluate which is bigger, both fractions must have a common denominator (bottom).The way to do this is to multiply each fraction by one.2/3 times 4/4 = 8/123/4 times 3/3 = 9/12.This makes it easy to see that 3/4 is larger than 2/3.
it is three quarters
