# Put these four fractions in order from smallest to largest: 1/4, 2/3, 4/7, 1/2.

Fractions are important concepts that are used for calculations. There are two parts of a fraction: numerator and denominator.

## Answer: The fractions from smallest to largest are: 1/4 < 1/2 < 4/7 < 2/3.

Let's understand the solution.

**Explanation:**

The fractions given are 1/4, 2/3, 4/7, 1/2.

Now, we find a common denominator = LCM of (4, 2, 7, 3) = 84

So, we have:

⇒ 1/4 = 21/84

⇒ 2/3 = 56/84

⇒ 4/7 = 48/84

⇒ 1/2 = 42/84

Hence, the order is 21/84 < 42/84 < 48/84 < 56/84

### Therefore, The fractions from smallest to largest is: 1/4 < 1/2 < 4/7 < 2/3.
