Make them equivalent fractions with the same denominator then compare the numerators: 2/5 = 2x3/5x3 = 6/15 1/3 = 1x5/3x5 = 5/15 Two fifths is larger than one third as two fifths is equivalent to six fifteenths whereas one third is only equivalent to five fifteenths which is smaller than six fifteenths.

No, three fifths is larger because it is 3 parts out of 5, or 60 percent, while one fifth is only one part out of five, or 20 percent. Hope this helped. that answer i agree with, but I would still like to put my point of view out for the world to see too. anyways, no one fifths is not bigger than three fifths . because THREE fifths is bigger than ONE fifths, (because one is obviously bigger than three)
