You either convert the fractions to a common denominator, and then compare, or you convert them to their decimal equivalent and then compare. The latter can quickly be done with a calculator.

Explain how comparing fractions with like denominators differs from comparing fractions with unlike denominators?

Because when you compare fractions with the same denominators, you do not have to find the least common denominator (LCM or LCD).

Is the least common denominator of two fractions is always greater than the denominators of the fractions?

No. Sometimes it is the same as one of them. If you are allowed to simplify the fractions first, you might even get a smaller number, but I'm not sure what your math teacher is going for in your case.

Adding unlike fractions?

If the denominators are not the same, then you have to use equivalent fractions which do have a common denominator . To do this, you need to find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators. To add fractions with unlike denominators, rename the fractions with a common denominator. Then add and simplify.
