No! The fraction seven eighths is bigger than the fraction four fifths.
Seven eighths is bigger. 2\5 < 7\8
3/10 is smaller than 7/8.
I thought the figure was seven-tenths, which is close to five-eighths...
seven tenths is one but there is more than that
5/8 is greater than 7/12
Yes, seven eighths is greater than five tenths. Five tenths, or one half, expressed in eighths would be four eighths. Since seven is greater than four, seven eighths is greater than four eighths (or five tenths). One easy way to know is use a calculator and do the division (seven divided by eight, and five divided by ten); in decimal form the higher value may be more quickly apparent when compared.
Five and seven tenths as a fraction would be 5 7/10.
