Yes 1/2 = 4/8 so 5/8 is 1/8 bigger than 4/8

1/5 An eighth piece is smaller *REMEMBER: The bigger to bottem number the smaller it is.*

5/8 is bigger. A simple method to see why is as follows: 5/8 > 4/8 = 1/2 7/15 < 7/14 = 1/2 So 7/15 < 1/2 < 5/8. You could, of course, rename both fractions to their common denominator, 120, and do lots of calculations before coming to the same conclusion.

(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5

(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5(1/2) / (5/8) = (1/2) * (8/5) = 4/5
