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

You can compare similar fractions by looking at their numerators. You can compare dissimilar fractions by converting them to similar fractions and looking at their numerators. You can convert a dissimilar fraction to a similar fraction by finding the least common denominator.

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.

Option 1: Find a common denominator for the two fractions. It need not be the least common denominator; for example, for two fractions, if you just multiply the two denominators, you get a common denominator. Convert all the fractions to the common denominator. Then you can compare. Option 2: Convert each fraction to decimal, by dividing the numerator by the denominator. Then you can compare the decimals.
