Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! IF you have any clarification, please don't hesitate to ask and I will do my best to answer. ++++++++++++

First, we examine whether all the fractions have the same denominator. We can see that only 2/6 (yellow chalk) doesn't have the same denominator as the blue (5/12) and green (3/12).

Second, we need to convert 2/6 such that its denominator will be the same with that of blue and green.

2/6 x 2/2 = (2 x 2) / (6 x 2) = 4 / 12

Third, we rank the fractions according to which is greater:

  1. 5/12 blue
  2. 4/12 yellow
  3. 3/12 green
Therefore, we can say that yellow (4/12) is GREATER than green (3/12).

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
