How do you arrange the fraction from greatest to least?

With certain fractions then experience and observation will enable them to be placed in descending order. With fractions where the order is difficult to assess then they will need to be converted to equivalent fractions having the same denominator. A direct comparison of the numerators will then enable the original fractions to be placed in order. EXAMPLE : Arrange 5/6. 8/9 and 7/8 in descending order. The Lowest Common Multiple of 6, 8 and 9 is 72. This is the new common denominator. 5/6 is equivalent to 5x12/6x12 = 60/72 : 8/9 is equivalent to 8x8/9x8 = 64/72 : 7/8 is equivalent to 7x9/8x9 = 63/72. Therefore the descending order is 64/72,63/72,60/72 or 8/9, 7/8, 5/6

Which way is ascending and descending?

Ascending order is when numbers are arranged from the smallest to the largest. Descending order is when numbers are arranged from the largest to the smallest.

How do you arrange fractions in asending order?

Various methods: * Convert the fractions into equivalent fractions with the same denominator; then order by smallest numerator to largest; * Convert the fractions to [approximate] decimals by dividing the numerators by the denominators; then order by the smallest decimal to largest; * Divide the denominators by the numerators; then order by the largest result to the smallest. In all cases list the original fractions.
