3/8 divided by 3/4 = 1/2 or 0.5

When dividing fractions turn the divisor (1/8) up-side-down and multiply: So 3/4 divided by 1/8 becomes: 3/4 times 8/1 => 24/4 => 6 So there are 6 eighths in three quarters.

2/3 66.6% and 5/8 62.5% thus 2/3 is bigger. Looked at another way, if we find the common denominator, we can make a direct comparison. 2/3 and 5/8 have 24 as a common denominator. If we convert them to 24ths, we'll have 16/24 and 15/24, respectively. And as 16/24 is larger than 15/24, the fraction 2/3 is larger.

4 and 3 eighths as a decimal = 4.375
