3/6 is the same as 4/8. it's a half

None. Three eighths in decimal form is .375 . You obtain the decimal form of a fraction by dividing the numerator (3) by the denominator (8). For one fraction to be equivalent, or "the same" as another, it needs to be exactly the same in decimal form as the other. Two sixths is .333 in decimal form, which is less than .375, meaning the answer is more than two sixths. Three sixths is .500, which is higher than .375, meaning the answer is less than three sixths. So the equivalent of three eighths in sixths lies somewhere in between two sixths and three sixths, but there is no exact number of sixths that is the equivalent of three eighths. To illustrate how a successful fractional equivalent would look, ask how many sixteenths are the same as three eighths. Five sixteenths is .313, less than .375, and six sixteenths is .375 exactly. You recall that three eighths is also .375. Therefore, you can conclude that six sixteenths is equivalent, or the same as, three eighths.

No. Convert to equivalent fractions with the same denominator and compare numerators: 4/8 = (4×3)/(8×3) = 12/24 2/6 = (2×4)/(6×4) = 8/24 12 does not equal 8, so 12/24 does not equal 8/24, thus 4/8 does not equal 2/6.

Four-sixths (4/3) reduced is the same as two-thirds (2/3) so four-sixths is greater!

Answer One half is the same as four eighths, so five eighths is one eighth more.

the comparison is exactly the same; 3/6th = a half or 0.5 4/8th = a half or 0.5

Two thirds equals four sixths. As well as any multiple of four sixths. Such as 8/12 ths. Simply multiple the numerator and denominator by the same number and you get a correct answer. Same thing with dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number.

Two thirds is the same amount as four-sixths.

Eleven of anything minus seven of the same thing leaves four of them.

No. Convert to equivalent fractions with the same denominator and compare numerators: 4/8 = (4×3)/(8×3) = 12/24 2/6 = (2×4)/(6×4) = 8/24 12 does not equal 8, so 12/24 does not equal 8/24, thus 4/8 does not equal 2/6.

One sixth. As the denominator (bottom number) is the same on both sides, simply take four away from five, and keep the denominator the same.

Four-sixths (4/3) reduced is the same as two-thirds (2/3) so four-sixths is greater!
