the fractions are equivalent
When the fractions are converted to equivalent fractions with the same denominator the one with the larger numerator is the larger fraction.
When you have fractions with like denominators, the larger is the one with the larger numerator.
an irregular fraction is a fraction where the numenator is larger than the denomenator
To compare two fractions, you convert them to equivalent fractions with the same denominator. Then you can compare their numerators (top parts). In that case, the fraction with the larger numerator is larger.
Then the fraction with the smaller denominator is larger.
no No; a mixed number is rational. Irrational means it cannot be written as a fraction, but mixed numbers can always be written as (improper) fractions. *By the way, improper fractions are still fractions, despite their degrading name! It just means the fraction's numerator is larger than its denominator.
If the fractions have the same numerator (top number), then the fraction with the larger denominator (bottom number) is the smaller fraction, which implies that the fraction with the smaller denominator is the larger fraction. For example with 1/2 and 1/4, it can be easily seen that 1/2 is the larger of the two.
yes. When you are working with fractions like this, the smaller the denominator, the larger the fraction.
any fraction where the denominator is larger than 3
In that case, and assuming both fractions are positive, the one with the larger denominator is the smaller fraction, because you are dividing by a larger number.
By its numerator as for example 3/4 is larger than 1/4
Subtract the smaller fraction from the larger one.
Subtract one from the other.If the answer is positive then the first is larger,if the answer is negative, then the second is larger.Rational numbers are numbers that can be expressed as fractions whereas irrational numbers can't be expressed as fractions.
The numerator and denominator in both types of fractions are integers. In a proper fraction the numerator is smaller than the denominator while in an improper fraction the numerator is larger.
A fraction is made up of two parts: a numerator (top number) and a denominator (bottom number). There are 3 types of fractions: Proper, Improper, Mixed. A proper fraction is one where the numerator is smaller than the denominator. An improper fraction is one where the numerator is larger or equal to the denominator. A mixed fraction is one with a whole number and a proper fraction together. 11 1/8 is a mixed fraction, and can be written as the improper fraction 89/8. It is impossible to write it as a proper fraction because the numerator is larger than the denominator. Also, all mixed fractions are improper fractions and no improper fractions can be written as proper fractions.
You can have fractions larger than 1. For example, 9/8 is a fraction that is larger than 1, as is 100000000000000000000000/3. Thus, the greatest possible fraction in the universe is greater than 1.
A fraction of a fraction is yet another (usually smaller) fraction. For example 1/4 of 1/3 = (1x1) / (4x3) = 1/12 Only when both or one of the fractions is an "improper" fraction (larger than 1) does the multiplication give a result that is larger than the beginning fractions. For example : 7/4 x 3/5 = 21/20 = 1 1/20
Ignoring negative numbers, proper fractions are less than one. Mixed numbers are greater than one.
To compare any two fractions they first need to be converted to numbers on a similar basis: Convert both to decimals: the smaller decimal is the smaller fraction. Find equivalent fractions with the same denominator: the fraction with the smaller numerator is the smaller number. Find equivalent fractions with the same numerator: the fraction with the larger denominator is the smaller number. I recommend that the last of these is used for integral reciprocals (comparing 1/2, 1/4, 1/7 etc) or by more proficient users.
The larger fraction is the one with the smaller denominator, when the numerators are the same.
To compare fractions is to determine which is larger. You can do this by changing both to the same denominator, or converting them to decimals.
There are infinitely many fractions between a half and one. One of them is 2/3
