Answer: Two fifths, one sixth, and then one third.

One third = 5/15One fifth = 3/15, so two fifths = 6/15.So one third is less than two fifths.

Convert both to fifteenths (3x5). One third is 5/15 and two fifths is 6/15, so two fifths is larger.

no...three sevenths is equal to 15/35 and two fifths is equal to 14/35.

2/3 = 10/15 and 1/5 = 3/15. 10/15 - 3/15 = 7/15 There's the answer

No, they cannot. 2/5 = 6/15 1/3 = 5/15 Since 6 is not equal to 5, the two cannot be equal.
