5/6 x 7 equals 5 5/6

Convert both fractions to a common denominator (for example, with a denominator of 80, which is 8 x 10), then compare. 3/8 becomes 30/80 and 7/10 becomes 56/80, and you can see easily that 7/10 is larger.

no because only 1, 0, and a half are benchmark fractions other fractions fall between those numbers

14/20, 28/40, and 56/80. Seven tenths is equal to 70% or .70.

7/12 or seven twelfths

less than

7 whole

5/6 minus 7/12 is 1/4.
