Let's work it out together:

First, you need to find the least common multiple of the denominators, the bottom numbers.

That would be 35. To get that you multiply seven by five, or five by seven.

So you have /35 ? /35

Now you have to balance the numerators, the top numbers. Since seven was multiplied by five, your have to multiply the four by the same number. You get 20 or 20/35. Now you have to convert the 3 by multiplying it by seven. You get 21 or 21/35.

That will look like this: 4/7 <=> 3/5 or 20/35 <=> 21/35

Or, 20/35 < 21/35

So 3/5 is greater than 4/7.
