On a number line, what number is two-thirds of the way from 5/8 to 4/7? Express your answer as a common fraction.

We can first find a common denominator. 

We can use 56 here.

So 5/8 --> 35/56

and 4/7 -->  32/56

2/3 of the way there would be 34/56 = 17/28.

If it's going down than it would be 33/56.

If you are going down from 5/8 to 4/7, then:

 

5/8  -  4/7 ==3 / 56

 

2/3  *  3/56 ==1 / 28
