If the fractions have the same numerator (top number), then the fraction with the larger denominator (bottom number) is the smaller fraction, which implies that the fraction with the smaller denominator is the larger fraction. For example with 1/2 and 1/4, it can be easily seen that 1/2 is the larger of the two.

Multiply each numerator by the opposite denominator, otherwise known as cross multiply. Then compare these two products and determine which one is larger. The fraction that contributed the numerator (top number) to the larger product is the larger fraction. For example: Which is larger, 2/5 or 3/4? Multiply 2 X 4 = 8 Multiply 3 X 5 = 15 Determine that 15 is larger than 8. Determine that the fraction 3/4 contributed the numerator (top number) to the larger product, 15. So 3/4 is larger than 2/5.

In a standard fraction, the number on top is the numerator, while the number on the bottom is the denominator.

If the numerator (the top number) is larger than the denominator (bottom number) then the fraction is greater than 1 If the denominator is greater than the numerator, then the fraction is less than 1

The top number is the numerator and the bottom number is the denominator.
