What do you do when comparing fractions and the denominator and the numerator are different?

Convert them into equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare the numerators.


Explain how comparing fractions with like denominators differs from comparing fractions with unlike denominators?

Because when you compare fractions with the same denominators, you do not have to find the least common denominator (LCM or LCD).


How can you compare fractions of the same whole?

you compare them


How do you compare fractions?

You can either convert fractions to decimals and compare the decimal numbers; find equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare numerators or find equivalent fractions with the same numerator and then compare denominators.


What is the definition of comparing fractions?

when 2 fractions have the same denomenator, the one the larger numerator is greater.


How do you do comparing fractions?

Fractions can be compared by seeing if the numerator and the denominator have the same numbers multiplied on the top and bottom.


What do fractions need to have to compare them?

The same numerator or the same denominator.


How do you compare 3 or more fractions?

Find the equivalent fractions with the same denominator (the least common multiple) and then compare the numerators.


What are three rules you can use to compare fractions?

Rule #1 When two fractions have the same denominator, the bigger fraction is the one with the bigger numerator. Rule # 2 When comparing fractions that have the same numerator, the bigger fraction is the one with the smaller denominator. Rule # 3 You can convert the fractions and then just put the greater than, less than or equal to sign to see what the comparison is between the fractions.


How do you figure out what fractions are greater?

Change the fractions to the same denominator then compare.A quick way is to multiply UP on cross multiply and compare.


Why is it easier to compare fractions with the same rather than denominator?

If the fractions have different denominators, you need to: 1) Convert to equivalent fractions with a common denominator, 2) Compare the numerators. If the fractions already have the same denominator, there is no need for the first step - which happens to be the most difficult step. Note that as a shortcut, you don't need the LEAST common denominator, any denominator can do. Thus, you can just use the product of the two denominators as the common denominator. As a result, to compare the fractions, you simply multiply the numerator of each fraction by the denominator of the other one, and then compare. However, this is still more work than simply comparing two numbers.


How do you compare fractions with the same denominator but different numerators?

The fractions can be ordered according to the order of their numerators.


How do you use comparing mixed fractions?

Assuming the fractions are "normalized" (the fractional part is less than 1): First compare the integer part. If the integer part is the same, you need to compare the fractions. If the denominator of the fractions is different, you have to convert to a common denominator. The simplest way to find a common denominator is to multiply both denominators (i.e., you don't need the LEAST common denominator - any common denominator will do).


What are some rules about comparing fractions with the same numerator?

It depends on how you need to compare them. If you want to know which one is larger, just look at the denominator - a smaller denominator means a larger number. If you need to add or subtract them, the only thing you can do is make the denominators equal.


Fractions can be added and subtracted only if they're fractions?

Fractions can be added and subtracted only if they are fractions with the same denominator.


What can You noticE about comparing 2 fractions when the numerators are the same?

The larger fraction is the one with the smaller denominator, when the numerators are the same.


What is a wy to compare two fractions when the denominator are the same?

They are in the same order, by size, as their numerators.


How do you compare fractions that have the same denominator?

The smaller fraction has the smaller numerator.


Why do you compare fractions?

To compare any two fractions they first need to be converted to numbers on a similar basis: Convert both to decimals: the smaller decimal is the smaller fraction. Find equivalent fractions with the same denominator: the fraction with the smaller numerator is the smaller number. Find equivalent fractions with the same numerator: the fraction with the larger denominator is the smaller number. I recommend that the last of these is used for integral reciprocals (comparing 1/2, 1/4, 1/7 etc) or by more proficient users.


Why is it easier to compare percent than fractions?

Because percentages are essentially the numerators of fractions with the same denominator, 100.


When you compare masses of the same volume of different substances you are doing what?

Comparing density


What is the meaning of compare fraction?

To compare fractions is to determine which is larger. You can do this by changing both to the same denominator, or converting them to decimals.


How do you compare mixed numbers?

First you have to compare the whole numbers. When the whole numbers are the same, compare the fractions. If the denominators of the fraction are the same, compare the numerators. If the denominators are different, convert them to have the least common denominators. Then compare the numerators.


What is bigger 8 over 40 or 6 over 10?

Comparing fractions is easiest with a common denominator. Then only the numerators need to be compared. Take 8/40, and divide numerator and denominator by 4 : 8/40 = 2/10. Now compare 2/10 and 6/10 is the same as comparing 2 and 6, so 6/10 is bigger.


Why is it important to learn about equivalent fractions?

Answer: When adding or subtracting fractions with different denominators it is important to change the denominators into the lowest common denominator by using equivalent fractions. Answer: Equivalent fractions are used to: * Simplify fractions. It is sort of inelegant to write the final solution of a problem as 123/246, when you can just as well write it as 1/2. * Add fractions. If two fractions have different denominators, you need to convert them to equivalent fractions that have the same denominator. Only then can you add. * Subtract fractions (same as addition). * Compare fractions, to check which one is larger (same as addition).
