two thirds equals 0.6 and the six goes on and on. five eighths equals to 0.625 so that means two thirds are bigger.

The answer is one half, think of it like this, take two apples cut one into three equal pieces (thirds) and the other into two (halves), half an apple is bigger than a third.

One third

Equivalent fractions must have equal denominators, and this is done by setting the denominators of both fractions to their smallest common multiple. So, say a person wants to compare two thirds and one half, they would set both denominators to six. Two thirds would become four sixths and one half would become three sixths. Thus, two thirds is bigger than one half.

A whole is 100% Half is 50% One third is (100 ÷ 3) = 33.3 Two thirds is 33.3 x 2= 66.6 Two thirds 66.6% is greater than One half 50%
