# How do you find out which fraction is bigger?

## How do you find out which fraction is bigger?

As long as the denominators are the same, the fraction with the greater numerator is the greater fraction, as it contains more parts of the whole. The fraction with the lesser numerator is the lesser fraction as it contains fewer parts of the whole.

Which fraction is less than 8 15?

Convert the fractions: 8/15 remains the same and 4/5 becomes 12/15. Write that 8/15 is less than 4/5 since the 8 is smaller than the 12.

Great job now another way we could have compared these twoMoreSo we can say that 2/4 is less than 3/4. Great job now another way we could have compared these two fractions is by noting that the denominator is the same in both fractions.

Which is the smallest fraction 7/15 or 9 10?

Steps for comparing fractions

• Find the least common denominator or LCM of the two denominators: LCM of 15 and 10 is 30.
• For the 1st fraction, since 15 × 2 = 30, 715 = 7 × 215 × 2 = 1430.
• Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 10 × 3 = 30, 910 = 9 × 310 × 3 = 2730.
• 1430 < 2730 or 715 < 910.

## What fractions are bigger than 1?

Fractions that are greater than 0 but less than 1 are called proper fractions. In proper fractions, the numerator is less than the denominator. When a fraction has a numerator that is greater than or equal to the denominator, the fraction is an improper fraction. An improper fraction is always 1 or greater than 1.

How do you put fractions in order from least to greatest?

### What fraction is smaller?

Comparing Fraction Review The bigger the denominator, the smaller the fraction. Remember: The bigger the denominator, the more parts the whole is split into, so each piece is smaller. When 2 fractions have the same denominator, just compare numerators. The bigger the numerator, the bigger the fraction.

How do you put fractions in order from smallest to largest?

We do this by first converting all terms into fractions, finding the least common denominator (LCD), then rewriting each term as an equivalent fraction with the LCD. Then we compare the numerators of each fraction and put them in correct order from least to greatest or greatest to least.

## How do you order fractions from smallest to largest?

Which of the following fractions is the largest 7 by 8 13 by 1631 by 4063 by 80?

Solution(By Examveda Team) of8,16,40and80=8078=7080;1316=6580;3140=6280Since,7080>6580>6380>6280,So,78>1316>6380>3140So,78isthelargest.

### How do you tell if a fraction is greater than 1 2?

Look at the denominator (If the numerator is less than half of the denominator, then the fraction is less than one-half. If the numerator is greater than half of the denominator, then the fraction is greater than one-half.)

Which fraction is bigger than 2 3?

Since 3⁄4 is greater than 2⁄3, you will select the > symbol. See the program RENAME IN HIGHER TERMS for more information on renaming fractions. One way to find the LCD is to see if the smaller denominator 3 will divide evenly into the larger denominator 4. If not, multiply the larger denominator 4 by 2 to get 8.

## How can you tell if a fraction is large or small?

Compare fractions: If denominators are the same you can compare the numerators. The fraction with the bigger numerator is the larger fraction.

How do you use the comparing fractions calculator?

How to Use the Comparing Fractions Tool To use the comparing fractions calculator, enter one fraction into the Fraction One box and another into the Fraction Two box. Then, hit the Which is Larger? button. At that point, we will highlight the larger fraction in green and write out the larger fraction in the Result box.

### What is the denominator of 3/8 as a fraction?

For 3/8, multiply numerator and denominator by 3 to have LCD = 24 in the denominator. Compare the fractions. Because there are like denominators you can compare the numerators. 20 is larger than 9, so:

Why is 20 a fraction of 9?

Because there are like denominators you can compare the numerators. 20 is larger than 9, so: For additional fraction help see our Fractions Calculator , Simplify Fractions Calculator and Mixed Numbers Calculator . References: Help with Fractions Finding The Least Common Denominator .
