5/6 = 15/18 so it is bigger

There are infinite numbers like this but 3 over 5, 3 over 6 and 3 over 7 are smaller than 3 over 4 and bigger than 3 over 8.

3/6 is equal to 1/2 because they both equal 50% or .5.

3/8 because if you double the top and the bottom, 3/8 is 6/16

Yes, 3/5 is bigger than 1/2. Convert to equivalent fractions with the same denominator then the numerators can be compared: 3/5 = (3×2)/(5×2) = 6/10 1/2 = (1×5)/(5) = 5/10 6 > 5 → 6/10 > 5/10 → 3/5 > 1/2.
