There are 9 ninths in a unit - seven ninths is less than nine ninths, so 7/9 <1

To visualise it, try this:

Cut a Pizza into nine equal slices - if they are not equal, pretend they are.

If you take seven of these nine slices, you have seven ninths of a pizza. Is that not less than the whole ONE?

1 over 7 Many fractions can be less than 2/7. If you're looking for any ol' answer, you can decrease the 2 to 1 to get 1/7 or increase the 7 to 8 to get 2/8 (or 1/4).

7/12 is greater than 1/2 (1/2 = 6/12).

yes, 7 over 8 is less that 1 over 2. 1 over 2 is .5, 50% or 1/2. if you have a pizza (and 1 person to share with) and you cut it in half, you and your friend get more of the pizza than if you would cut it into 8 slices and you (and 6 others) eat 7 slices.

The absolute value of 4 over 7 is less than 1 and so there is no mixed number for it.

No, it is not. Half of 7 would be 3.5, and half of two would be 1. Thus, 3 is less than half of 7 while 1 is exactly half of 2, which means 1/2 is greater than 3/7.

Greater than. 7 over 6 is 1 1/6 while 3/5 is less than 1

Yes. 2/7 is the same as 6/21 1/3 is the same as 7/21 so 2/7 is less than 1/3

0.5 = 1/2 7 over 100 = 7/100 1/2 is equal to 50/100, which is greater than 7/100. So yes, 7 over 100 is less than 0.5

Yes, 7 is greater than 9 over 10 because 9/10 is less than 1, which in turn is less than 7.

greater than 1

No, 1/7 is less than 2/7. 2/7 is two times greater than 1/7.

yes, 7 over 8 is less that 1 over 2. 1 over 2 is .5, 50% or 1/2. if you have a pizza (and 1 person to share with) and you cut it in half, you and your friend get more of the pizza than if you would cut it into 8 slices and you (and 6 others) eat 7 slices.

no less 1/7 x 4/4 = 4/28 1/4 x 7/7 = 7/28 so 1/4 is more
