[Five sevenths] is 0.0893 greater than [five eighths]. (rounded)
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 eighths = 5/8 = 0.625 = 62.5% Hence five eighths < (less than) 65%
Answer One half is the same as four eighths, so five eighths is one eighth more.
Yes it is. Just like 7 is greater than 5.
One fourth is considerably less than five eighths. To convert fourths into eighths, you can multiply the fraction 1/4 by 2/2 and get 2/8. It should be apparent that two eighths is a lot less than five eighths. Less than half, in fact.
ten sixteenths, fifteen twenty-fourths, and twenty thirty sixths =)
Yes. If two fractions have the same numeratorthen the one with the smaller denominator is the greater fraction.
15/8 * (5 9/12) = 345/32 = 10.78125
5/8 is greater than 0.5 which is the same as 1/2
