This is the problem
Dan says 3/5 Is the same as 3.5. Is he correct? Explain

No, Dan is not correct. 3/5 is not the same as 3.5

3/5 is saying 3 out of 5, which is a little more than one half between 1 and 2.
3.5 is saying 3 and a half, which is half way between the numbers 3 and 4.


He is not correct


The first number is \( \frac{3}{5} \)

We can note that the numerator is less than the denominator. This means that the given fraction is less than 1

In decimal form, \( \frac{3}{5} \) is equal to 0.6

The second number is 3.5

We can note that this number is greater than 1.

This means that the two numbers are not equal
