# Is 5/8 greater than 3/4?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking if the fraction 5/8 is greater than the fraction 3/4. To solve this, we will compare the two fractions.

$$\frac{5}{8}$$ is not greater than $$\frac{3}{4}$$

The fraction ( \frac{5}{8} ) is not greater than ( \frac{3}{4} )

#### Steps to Solve

1. Find a common denominator

To compare the fractions directly, we need to have the same denominator. The denominators here are 8 and 4. The least common multiple (LCM) of 8 and 4 is 8. So we will convert both fractions to have a denominator of 8.

1. Convert 3/4 to a denominator of 8

We need to convert $\frac{3}{4}$ to have a denominator of 8. We can do this by multiplying both the numerator and the denominator by 2.

$$\frac{3}{4} = \frac{3 \times 2}{4 \times 2} = \frac{6}{8}$$

Now we have $\frac{3}{4} = \frac{6}{8}$.

1. Compare the numerators

Now that we have both fractions with the same denominator, we can compare the numerators: $\frac{5}{8}$ and $\frac{6}{8}$. Since 5 is less than 6, $\frac{5}{8}$ is less than $\frac{6}{8}$.

Therefore, $\frac{5}{8}$ is not greater than $\frac{3}{4}$.

The fraction ( \frac{5}{8} ) is not greater than ( \frac{3}{4} )
