2/5 = 4/10 so it is bigger than 3/10.

3 over five 2/3 = 10/15, and 3/5 = 9/15. 2 over 3 (10/15) is obviously bigger than 3 over 5 (9/15).

2/10 is bigger than 15/100

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.

1/4 = 2/8 so 3/8 is bigger

12/15 is bigger than 4/10 or 4/5 is bigger than 2/5

Yes.

2/5 = 0.45/10 = 0.5Therefore, 5/10 is bigger than 2/5.

2/5 = 4/10 so it is bigger than 3/10.

1/5 is the same as 2/10, so, yes, 3/10 is bigger than 1/5.

3 over five 2/3 = 10/15, and 3/5 = 9/15. 2 over 3 (10/15) is obviously bigger than 3 over 5 (9/15).

Yes.

yes 23 over 100 >2 over 10 (or 20 over 100)

Yes to make 2/3 and 2/5 similar make the lower number the same 3 x 5 = 15 2/3 = 10/15 2/5 = 6/15 so 10/15 is bigger than 6/15 so 2/3 is bigger than 2/5

To find which is bigger it is easier to convert both numbers to the same sort of fractions, so... 2/10 is the same as 4/20 1/4 is the same as 5/20 As you can see 1/4 is a bigger number than 2/10

No, 2 over 1 is 2 and 3 over 1 is 3, so 3 is bigger than 2.
