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.
A proper fraction is one fraction in which the numerator is smaller than the denominator. Dissimilar fractions are two or more fractions whose denominators are different (dissimilar).
Numerator, Denominator or Denominator, Numerator.
Dissimilar fractions are fractions that have different denominators.
The same numerator or the same denominator.
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.
Only Fractions with a Common Denominator can be directly compared.
The smaller fraction has the smaller numerator.
Convert them into equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare the numerators.
Two ways: Convert them to decimals and compare or convert them to equivalent fractions with a common denominator and compare the numerators.
Dissimilar fractions may or may not be proper fractions.
