No. If you convert both to 15ths, 2/5 is 6/15, while 1/3 is 5/15. So 2/5 is larger. Another way to tell which fraction is larger is to cross-multiply. The fraction with the numerator which gives the larger product when multiplied by the other denominator is the larger one. So if you multiply the 2 from 2/5 with the 3 from 1/3, you get 6. If you multiply the 1 from 1/3 with the 5 from 2/5, you get five. So 6 is larger than 5, meaning that 2/5 is larger.
