Best Answer

To compare two fractions, find a common denominator (multiplying the two denominators will always give you a common denominator), convert both fractions to the common denominator, then compare.

Another - actually easier - way to compare two fractions is to convert both to decimal. Just pick up a calculator, and divide the numerator by the denominator.
