7 tenths

No. Three eighths is only 93.75% of four tenths.

3/10 is smaller than 7/8.

You find the common denominator, with is over 80, so multiply 3 by 10, and 6 by 8. This gives you 30/80 and 48/80, so six tenths is bigger. An easier way to look at this is, 4 eigths is half, 5 tenths is half, 3 eigths is lower than 4 eigths, but six tenths is bigger then 5 tenths. Hope this helped. :)

3/10=30% so this is bigger. 2/7 = 29%
