### Comparing Fractions

We can look at the amounts and visually see that a fourth is larger than a piece that is called an eighth,
but do we know for sure that $$\frac{3}{4}$$ is greater than $$\frac{5}{8}$$?

We can prove this by:

• Physically laying the pieces on top of each other or
• Renaming the pieces so we can compare them.
