**Answer:**

**4/
5
**

** is greater than **

**25
/40**

**Step-by-step explanation: **

**Find the least common denominator or LCM of the two denominators:
**

**LCM of 5 and 40 is 40
**

**For the 1st fraction, since 5 × 8 = 40,
**

**4/
5 = 4 × 8 5 × 8 = 32/
40
**

**Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 40 × 1 = 40,
**

**25
/40 = 25 × 1 40 × 1 = 25/
40
**

**Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
**

**32
/40 > 25
/40 or 4
/5 > 25
/40**

**Answer:**

It is not true because if you multiply the denominator by 8, you will get 40 and if you also multiply the numerator by 8, you get 32 which is 32/40 which is not equal to 25/40.
