you have to find like denominators and then you order them from least to greatest by there numerators

Two ways: Convert them to like fractions with a common denominator and order them by their numerators or convert them to decimals, order them, and change them back.

Listing the fractions is ascending (or descending) order.

You can order fractions by finding the percentage (top divided by bottom multiplied by 100).

Your fractions are: 5/12, 2/9, 5/6. You want them in least to greatest order. This is also called in ascending order. 1) Convert all fractions to easier denominators. Common denominator is 18. 2) Convert all fractions. 3) 7.5/18, 4/18, 15/18. 4) Arrange them all in ascending order. 5) Answer: 4/18 (2/9) , 7.5/18 (5/12) , 15/18 (5/6)

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.

Usually smallest to largest, least to greatest.
