# Which of the following fraction is the greatest?$$\Large \frac{7}{8}$$, $$\Large \frac{6}{7}$$, $$\Large \frac{4}{5}$$, $$\Large \frac{5}{6}$$

 A) $$\Large \frac{6}{7}$$ B) $$\Large \frac{5}{6}$$ C) $$\Large \frac{4}{5}$$ D) $$\Large \frac{7}{8}$$

 D) $$\Large \frac{7}{8}$$

$$\Large \frac{7}{8}=875;\ \frac{6}{7}=857;\ \frac{4}{5}=.08; \frac{5}{6}=.833$$

Therefore $$\Large \frac{7}{8}$$ is the greatest of all.
