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.

Expressed as a mixed number in its simplest form, 4/5 + 8/10 = 1 3/5 or one and three fifths. Expressed as a decimal, this is equal to 1.6.

Yes - expressed as a decimal, 4/5 is equal to 0.8, while 3/5 is equal to 0.6.

if you give 3/5 and 2/3 common denominators then they are 9/15 and 10/15 respectively. so, no.
