Greatest on a list of proper fractions, least on a list of improper fractions.

you have to compare the common fractions

Fractions are ratios. Equivalent fractions form a proportion.

Listing the fractions is ascending (or descending) order.

When doing fractions it is the greatest common factor (GCF) and the least common multiple (LCM). You want the GCF when you are reducing fractions to their simplest form. When changing the denominators to a common one, you want the LCM.

Greatest Common Factor refers to whole numbers, not fractions. The simplest form of 14/18 is 7/9.

When reducing fractions to their lowest terms

Get each fraction to have a common denominator, and then sort the fractions from least to greatest based on the numerators.

Least to greatest, they are 7.018, 7.18, 7.1811, 7.2
