As fractions are numbers you would use the same methods as any other comparison or ordering of numbers. Largest to smallest or smallest to largest are the most likely ways

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How do you order fractions and whole numbers?

 Put fractions in decimal form. That way it is much easier to compare and order them.


How do you compare fractions with the same denominator but different numerators?

The fractions can be ordered according to the order of their numerators.


How do you do compare and order fractions and mixed numbers?

It may be simplest to convert them all to a common form: rational fractions, decimal fractions or percentages and then compare them. When you are more expert, you may be able to convert them pairwise into a common basis and compare.


How do you explain a method to compare fractions?

Convert them to decimals and order them least to greatest.


What is a wy to compare two fractions when the denominator are the same?

They are in the same order, by size, as their numerators.


How do you order fractions with unlike denominators?

You can convert them to equivalent fractions with like denominators, then simply compare the numerators.You might also convert each fraction to a decimal (divide the numerator by the denominator); then you can also compare them.


How do you compare fractions by using the gcf?

You cannot compare fractions by using the GCF since GCF determines the common factors of both fractions. Instead, use the LCD to compare the fractions. Find the LCM of the denominator terms of the fractions. Then, obtain the fractions with the common denominators. Finally, compare the numerator values to determine which fraction is the greatest/least.


How do you compare fractions in terms of similar and dissimilar fractions?

You can compare similar fractions by looking at their numerators. You can compare dissimilar fractions by converting them to similar fractions and looking at their numerators. You can convert a dissimilar fraction to a similar fraction by finding the least common denominator.


How do you compare fractions?

You can either convert fractions to decimals and compare the decimal numbers; find equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare numerators or find equivalent fractions with the same numerator and then compare denominators.


How do you compare dissimilar fractions compare the numerator?

Two ways: convert them to decimals or convert them to similar fractions and compare the numerators.

Do you need a common denominator for all fractions before doing the order of operations?

You DO need a common denominator to add, subtract, or compare fractions. You DO NOT need a common denominator to multiply or divide fractions.

How can you compare fractions of the same whole?

you compare them


How do you put fractions in ascending order?

You need to be able to compare two fractions at a time, to see which one is greater. One way to do this is to convert two fractions at a time to a common denominator. It need not be the least common denominator - any common denominator will do, therefore you can just multiply the two denominators. Another way to compare fractions is to convert them to decimal. This can quickly be done with a calculator.


How do you find fractions from least to greatest?

you have to compare the common fractions


Which of the fractions is larger five sixths or seven twelfths?

To compare two fractions, find a common denominator, then convert each fraction to equivalent fractions with that common denominator. Finally, you compare the numerators. 5/6


How do you compare 3 or more fractions?

Find the equivalent fractions with the same denominator (the least common multiple) and then compare the numerators.


How do you put fractions and decimals to least and greatest?

convert fractions to decimal then just compare them,and then put them in order!:)


How do you put different fractions in increasing order?

Option 1: Find a common denominator for the two fractions. It need not be the least common denominator; for example, for two fractions, if you just multiply the two denominators, you get a common denominator. Convert all the fractions to the common denominator. Then you can compare. Option 2: Convert each fraction to decimal, by dividing the numerator by the denominator. Then you can compare the decimals.


How do you do equal fractions?

To compare fractions, convert both of them to a common denominator.


Do you use notation to compare and order fractions?

You can use the same notation and ordering for fractions as you do integers. The difficulty with fractions is that in most cases you need to find eqivalent denominators to see how they rank. Ie. If I said order for smallest to largest 2/3, 1/6, 72/96 and 24/48. It would be difficult without finding some similar base (is 2/3>72/96?). Instead if you conver them into a common base... 8/12, 2/12, 9/12, 6/12. Now you can easily order and/or compare the fractions.


How to compare fractions?

The usual method is to convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with a common denominator. Then you can simply compare the numerators. You can also convert each of the fractions to a decimal - this can easily be done with a calculator, simply divide the numerator by the denominator.


How do you figure out what fractions are greater?

Change the fractions to the same denominator then compare.A quick way is to multiply UP on cross multiply and compare.


What is comparing and ordering fractions?

Ordering fractions is putting them in order, usually least to greatest, smallest to largest. In order to determine whether a fraction is larger or smaller than another one, it is necessary to compare them. This is done by determining a common denominator and comparing the numerators.
