Yes, five sixths is bigger than four twelfths (simplified: one third).

The second is bigger.

Three twelfths is equivalent to one fourth, and one half is also equivalent to two fourths. Therefore, one half is bigger than three twelfths.

1/2 = six twelfths That's bigger than one twelfth.

Well a saying goes for any fraction, The bigger the denominator (# on the bottom of the bar) the smaller the piece.
