Which is greater 6 1/3,6 2/5 or 6 3/10?

This is a math question that I just can not explain to my child

6 2/5 is the greatest. You could make a graph to help explain this to your child. You can also turn them into decimal points, that might let your child see the differences. 6 1/3 is equal to 6.33 6 2/5 is equal to 6.4 6 3/10 is equal to 6.3.

No kristy, that is in the middle. 61/3 is 6.33 62/5 is 6.4. That is the winner.

Kris, I cannot remember the names and I cannot refer back for the correct name. I have a granddaughter Chrissy who is 23 and she still calls me "bumpa".

an easy way to solve this is divide the fractions into decimals like 1/2 divided is .5 and then you add the whole number and compare which is greatest

find the common denominator: 6 1/3 = 6 10/30; 6 2/5 = 6 12/30; 6 3/10 = 6 9/30...therefore, 6 3/10 is the smallest and 6 2/5 is the greatest
