we need to equal the denominators of the fractions to compare, as 24 is the minimum common multiple of 3 an 8, we need to convert the fractions to be divided by 24 somehow, multipliying and dividing by a correct number will do: (2/3)(8/8) = 2*8/3*8 = 16/24 (7/8)(3/3) = 7*3/8*3 = 21/24 now we can easily compare: 21/24 > 16/24 that is: 7/8 > 2/3 Then the answer is no, 2/3 isn't greater than 7/8

to find the answer to that, first we ave to make the denominators same,  2/3= 2×8/3×8=16/24 7/8=7×3/8×3=21/24  from 16/24 and 21/24, 21/24 is bigger because the numerator is bigger and the denominators are the same. so your answer should be 7/8. hope this helps............
