Seven-eighths is the same as twenty-one twenty-fourths. Five-sixths is the same as twenty twenty-fourths. Twenty-one twenty-fourths is greater than twenty twenty-fourths.

One way is if you write those fractions down across from each other 7/8 5/6 but write it with the line going between the fractions instead of doing it with the slant lines like I did then multiply the numbers across

Example...

7x6 =42.

8x5 =40

As you can see 7/8 is bigger than 5/6 3
