on friday natalie ran 1/2 mile. if she ran further on saturday, which fraction could represent the distance she ran on saturday? 2/5 mi, 3/6 mi, 3/8 mi, 4/6 mi

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.

so if she ran further on saturday?
what am i looking for? 
You're looking for the distance she ran on Saturday.

yes how do you do that? please show me how that is done? how do i find what she ran on saturday?

Which decimal is larger than 0.5?

are you just doubling what she ran on friday?

4/6 = 0.67

The question just asks how far she ran on Saturday.
You're answer of 4/6 is correct. 
thank you it makes sense.
