Best Answer

Write 1/2 into its equivalent fractions. ' 2/4 , 4/8. 8/16 5/10

So for 1/2 = 24/ < 3/4

So for 1/2 = 4/8 < 5/8 . 6/8(3/4) , 7/8

So for 1/2 = 8/16 < 9/16.10/16(5/8).11/16_12/16(3/4).13/16,14/16)7/8),15/16

So for 1/2 = 5/10 < 6/10)3/5).7/10.8/10 (4/5),9/10

That's just a few to show how to do it. There are many more fractional systems. The equivalent reduced fraction is placed in brackets alongside.

What does it mean to compare fractions?

From what I remember, usually comparing 2 fractions means to determine which one is greater. For example compare 2/3 and 3/4. Either convert both to decimal if you're allowed to have a calculator, then you can certainly do that by just dividing. Or you can find a common denominator for the two fractions, and compare the equivalent fractions. In this case the lowest common denominator is 12, and 2/3 is 8/12 and 3/4 is 9/12. Since 9 is bigger than 8, then 9/12 is greater than 8/12, and 3/4 is greater than 2/3.
