How do you compare fractions that are not similar?

To compare fractions which are not similar, the fractions must be made similar by putting them over a common denominator. There are two similar ways of doing this:Find the lowest common multiple of the denominators. Multiply the first numerator by whatever number you multiply the first denominator by to get that multiple, and do the same with the second numerator and denominator. You can then compare the numerators.Multiply the first numerator by the second denominator, and the second numerator by the first denominator, and put both numerators over the product of the two denominators. You can then compare the numerators.
