### Why is 6 over 8 greater than 5 over 8?

5/8 is the same as having five 1/8s,
ie 5/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8
6/8 is the same as having six 1/8s,
ie 6/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8
= (1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8) + 1/8
= 5/8 + 1/8
ie 6/8 is 5/8 plus and extra 1/8 which is 5/8 plus something
(positive), thus it must be greater than 5/8
