No.Convert both to decimal or a fraction then the comparison can be made:To decimal:5/8 = 5 Ã· 8 = 0.625 > 0.5 Thus 0.5 is not greater than 5/8To fraction:0.5 = 5/10 = 1/2 Change the fractions into equivalent fractions with the same denominator (bottom numbers) and compare the numerators (top numbers):lcd of 2 and 8 is 8, thus:1/2 = 4/8 < 5/8Thus 0.5 is not greater than 5/8

1/2=4/8=1/2

It is called an improper fraction. Fractions between 0 and 1 are called proper fractions.3/2, 4/3, 5/4, 6/5, 7/6, 8/7, 9/8, 10/9, etc.Also, any whole number greater than one is a fraction greater than one. ex. 3 = 3/1 or 6/2.

They are simply 8/1 or 16/2

1/2 and 1/8 have different denominators. If I (or you) were to change 1/2 into 4/8, which I (or you) can do because 4/8 is a half and a half is 1/2. Basically 4/8=1/2. But if we change 1/2 to 4/8 and left 1/8 as 1/8, they would both be like fractions.

Convert to equivalent fractions with the same denominator and compare the numerators: 5/8 = 5/8 1/2 = (1×4)/(2×4) = 4/8 5 > 4 → 5/8 > 4/8 → 5/8 > 1/2 Yes. 5/8 is greater than 1/2

Dissimilar fractions are fractions whose denominators are not the same. for example 3/8 and 1/2, their denominators are 8 and 2.
