    Answer:

    2/3 is greater

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Two fractions can only be compared if their denominators are equal. In the given problem they are different, so first we make them equal.

     \frac{2}{3}  =  \frac{2 \times 5}{3 \times 5}  =  \frac{10}{15}  \\  \\  \frac{2}{5}  =  \frac{2 \times 3}{5 \times 3}  =  \frac{6}{15} \\  \\   \because \: \frac{10}{15} > \frac{6}{15} \\  \\  \purple{ \boxed{ \bold{ \therefore \: \frac{2}{3}   > \frac{2}{5}  }}}
