# Which is Bigger 2 3/4 or 2 5/8

We will be using the concept of fractions to solve this. We will convert the mixed numbers to improper fractions and then express them as like fractions to compare.

## Answer: The Bigger of 2 3/4 or 2 5/8 is 2 3/4

Let's solve this step by step.

**Explanation: **

Given fractions 2 3/4 and 2 5/8

We know from the definition of mixed fractions that:

2 3/4 = [2(4) + 3] / 4 = 11/4

2 5/8 = [2(8) + 5] / 8 = 21/8

To determine a greater fraction, the denominator should be the same. Hence, we will express the above improper fractions as like fractions.

Determine the LCM of 4 and 8. LCM(4,8) = 8

Multiply and divide 11/4 by 2 ⇒ 11/4 = 22/8

So, we have fractions to compare: 22/8 or 21/8

Compare the numerators 22 and 21. Since 22 is greater than 21, therefore 22/8 is bigger than 21/8.
