Because the denominator (bottom number) of the fraction tells you how many equal pieces the whole thing has been cut up into. When you cut up the whole thing into 6 pieces, each piece is bigger than if you cut it into 8 pieces, but less than if you cut it into 3 pieces.

It is greater than 1/8 because 1/6 is divided into bigger pieces (6) than 1/8 but less than 1/3 becase 1/3 is cut into 3 pieces . But six is into more pieces so it is less if the amount
