the bigger fraction is incorrect

The girl's feet are closer to the surface of the pool because negative 4 over 5 > negative 2 over 5. The boy's feet are closer to the surface of the pool because negative 4 over 5 > negative 2 over 5. The girl's feet are closer to the surface of the pool because negative 4 over 5 < negative 2 over 5. The boy's feet are closer to the surface of the pool because negative 4 over 5 < negative 2 over 5.

-2/5 = - 0.4 -4/5 = - 0.8 we need to find the smallest distance from the pool. With positive numbers, the bigger number is greater, but with negative numbers, the smaller number is greater. Therefore, -0.8 (or -4/5) is greater then -0.4 (or -2/5). Boys feet are closer because -4/5 > -2/5
