They both have the same numerator.

yes. When you are working with fractions like this, the smaller the denominator, the larger the fraction.

One fifteenth.

No it is a decimal but 3 and one fifteenth is

2/30

one fifteenth

The fraction seven and one third is one such fraction.

yes

One possible answer is 60/150.

One third is larger = 0.33333

Neither is larger.

0ne twelfth of one third in fraction = 1/36

yes,it's greater.

one fifteenth or 1/15

It is one ninth.

When the fractions are converted to equivalent fractions with the same denominator the one with the larger numerator is the larger fraction.

One third of nine is an integer and not a fraction.

Approximating a fraction would depend upon how the fraction is expressed, which would either be in the form of one number divided by another number, or by a decimal. For example, one third is either one divided by three (1/3), or it is .3333333333333333 (etc.). In the latter case, you can decide how many decimal points you want to give, such as, one third is aproximately .333; there would be no point in approximating the 1/3 format of one third. But suppose the fraction was .3337; that is slightly larger than a third, but it could still be approximated as a third. Or, 100/301 which is slightly less than a third, could be approximated as a third.

four and one third as an improper fraction = 13/3

It depends on what the fraction is.

one third plus one fifth is eight fifteenth

One seventh is larger than one eighth. The smaller the number under a 1 in a fraction, the larger that fraction is. Think 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and you'll see the size of the fraction increasing; the numbers are becoming larger.

one third = 1/3
