8 is two thirds of 12 so that 8/12 = 2/3. 9 is greater than 8 so 9/12 is greater than 8/12 which is 2/3.

How can you use a benchmark fraction to decide What is greater two fifth and seven twelfths?

I do not know what a " benchmark " fraction is, so I just use like denominators to compare different fractions. 60 will have to do here. 12*2/12*5 and 5*7/5*12 24/60 and 35/60 from this we can see that 7/12 is greater than 2/5 7/12 > 2/5 --------------- 1/2 is a benchmark fraction. Since 7/12 is greater than 1/2 and 2/5 is less than 1/2, 7/12 must be greater than 2/5.
