Which is bigger 3/8 or 1/4?
We need to compare the value of both the fractions to get the answer.
Answer: 3/8 is bigger than 1/4
Let us find the value of the fractions in the following section.
3/8 is expressed as 0.375 as a decimal and 1/4 is expressed as 0.25 in its decimal form.
It is clear that the value of 3/8 is more than 1/4. Hence, it is bigger.
We can also check this by converting the given fractions to a common denominator.
The Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 4 and 8 is 8.
Therefore 1/4 can be expressed as 2/8.
Thus, on comparing 3/8 and 2/8, we can say 3/8 has a greater value. Hence, 3/8 is bigger than 1/4
