Your teacher probably wants you to find the common multiple of 2, 5, 6, and 8.
The simpler way is to convert each of these fractions to decimals.
1/2 = 0.5
2/5 = 0.4
3/6 = 0.5
3/8 = 0.375
4/6 = 0.67

please show how you converted
1/2 = 0.5
2/5 = 0.4
3/6 = 0.5
3/8 = 0.375
4/6 = 0.67

I used a calculator and divided the numerator by the denominator.

Which decimal is larger than 0.5?

Math problems  Steven Hernandez, Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 9:09pm
are you just doubling what she ran on friday?

4/6 = 0.67

Math problems  Ms. Sue, Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 9:19pm
The question just asks how far she ran on Saturday.
You're answer of 4/6 is correct.
