## How do we Compare Fractions?

Comparing the value of two fractions means to check which fraction is greater than, less than, or equal to the other one. We use the symbol ' > ' to show the comparison. For example, let us compare fractions a/b and c/d.

- Here, if a/b is greater than c/d, we write it as: a/b > c/d.
- Similarly, if a/b is less than c/d, we write it as: a/b < c/d.
- If a/b is equal to c/d, we write it as: a/b = c/d.

**Solved Example: **

Compare the fractions 3/4 and 5/6.

**Solution:**

The first fraction = 3/4; the second fraction = 5/6

To compare the two fractions, we will follow the procedure given below:

- We need to get a common denominator in both the fractions so that the numerators can be compared. This can be done by multiplying the numerator and denominator of the fraction by the same number. This will give a fraction with an equivalent value and the denominators will be common.
- To compare 3/4 and 5/6, we know that the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of the denominators is 12. So, we will multiply the numerator and denominator of the first fraction 3/4 by 3, to get 12 as the denominator. (3×3)/(4×3)= 9/12.
- Similarly, we will multiply the numerator and denominator of the second fraction 5/6 by 2, to get 12 as the denominator. (5×2)/(6×2)= 10/12. Now, when we compare 9/12 and 10/12, we know that 10/12 is greater than 9/12.
- Therefore, 5/6 > 3/4.

Now, you can use the calculator to compare the following sets of fractions.

- 3/8 and 5/9
- 4/12 and 3/4
- 5/10 and 2/5
