Fractional Wall problem before this one.

Using the fraction wall above, can you say which is bigger,
$\frac{1}{3}$ or $\frac{2}{8}$? By how much?

Which is smaller, $\frac{5}{6}$ or $\frac{3}{4}$? By how
much?

What is the difference between $\frac{5}{6}$ and
$\frac{1}{3}$?

What is three quarters of $\frac{2}{3}$? Can you explain how you
worked this out?
