# How do you put fractions in smallest to largest?

This is kind of difficult to explain in one post, but I'll give it a shot. Pretend you have a group of fractions: 1/4, 2/8, 1/2 To organize the fractions from smallest to greatest, you first have to make them all the same denominator. The denominator is the number at the bottom of a fraction. You can make all the fractions have the same denominator by multiplying the top, by the same amount you multiply the denominator (multiply the denominator into the smallest number that can be divided into every fraction's denominator) Like this. 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2.. The number that all the denominators can divide into is 8. So, to make the fractions have the denominator of 8, you have to multiply the denominator with a number that will make it 8. However, when you multiply the bottom, you must also do it to the top. It looks like this: 1x2/4x2, 3x1/8x1, 1x4/2x4 After you calculate that, it will look like this: 2/8, 3/8, 4/8. After they are all the same denominator, just order them from lowest to greatest by how big the top number is. That will look like: 2/8, 3/8, 4/8. This is because 2 is the smallest, then it's 3, then its 4. I hope that helped you understand. Another method (easier) Convert the fractions into decimals. You can use a calculator. This will allow you to sort them from smallest to largest just by comparing their decimal conversions or approximations.

Example: 1/4 = .250, 3/8 = .375, 1/2 = .500. This lets you compare the fractions by comparing their relative amounts. Comparing fractions with different denominators is like comparing apples and grapes.
