Multiply each numerator by the opposite denominator, otherwise known as cross multiply. Then compare these two products and determine which one is larger. The fraction that contributed the numerator (top number) to the larger product is the larger fraction.

For example:

Which is larger, 2/5 or 3/4?

Multiply 2 X 4 = 8

Multiply 3 X 5 = 15

Determine that 15 is larger than 8.

Determine that the fraction 3/4 contributed the numerator (top number) to the larger product, 15.

So 3/4 is larger than 2/5.

No because the smallest fraction depeneds on how many parts you have for instance if the denominator is larger the fraction is smaller

It is called "writing a fraction as an equivalent fraction with a larger denominator"!

The name of a fraction with a larger number on top is called an improper fraction.

When the fractions are converted to equivalent fractions with the same denominator the one with the larger numerator is the larger fraction.

No, because there is an infinite number of possibilities smaller from the larger gives

A fraction can be larger than 1, for example, 4/2 is a fraction (which can be simplified to 2). Only a fraction that is larger than 1, multiplied by another number gives you a larger number.

Subtract the smaller fraction from the larger one.
