Start by simplifying all the fractions then draw a picture of each one and that should help

Okay here's what you do: Divide 2 / 3. 2 / 3= 0.666666667 or 0.(6)7. The parentheses mean that 6 is repeating. Now do the same for the other fractions. 1 / 2 = 0.5 2 / 6 = 0.(3) <--- the 3 is repeating. 5 / 12 = 0.41(6)7 6 / 8 = 0.75 All that really matters though is the first digit.  The first digit for 2 / 3 is 6, all the answer choices has a first digit that is lower than 6, except for the last one, 0.75. So 6 / 8 is the answer. Thanks for your question!
