The greater than sign is > and the less than sign is < To help remember which is which, think about which end of the sign is greater in size - the number at that end is the greater number (and the number at the other end number lesser number).

i think divisibility rules help with fractions because it helps you reduce the fraction to make i a simple fraction.

It can help by when finding the LCD (Least Common Denominator) you find the least number they have in common then that number is your equivalent fraction.

I need help in how to convert fractions to decimals

what fractions are equivalent to 5/20

what fractions?

I assume you mean, with different denominators. If you want to add the fractions, subtract them, or compare them (determine which one is greater), you have to convert them to similar fractions (fractions with the same denominator) first. Converting to similar fractions is not necessary, and usually doesn't even help, if you want to multiply or divide fractions.

Fractions help with numbers that are not whole numbers.

You are asked to put the fractions on a number line to help you understand fractions. It isn't so much you will use a number line " in real life" but it gives you a visual representation to help you learn. You will use fractions for many things in life. Just do what what you are asked to do by your teacher they have a reason. You are not the only student in the class and others may need a bit extra assignments to help them understand. Go with the flow. Not all things in life will relate to "real life."

it helps you find the distance between fractions because the new name should be an equivalent fraction. Therefore it should be able to be divided\multiplied by 2 to make the original number.

Number factors help find common denominators in fractions and reducing fractions. In algebra they are used to find the answers to higher level equations like quadratics.

Your teacher can help you with fractions. Ask for extra worksheets and problems to solve. Your peers can also help you work problems.
