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

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.
