When 2 fractions have the same denominator, the one the larger numerator is greater.

Example:
Compare the given fraction
5/5 and 2/3

Solution:
Here 5/5 is greater than 2/3

Example: Which is larger: 3/8 or 5/12  ?
If you multiply 8 × 3 you get 24 , and if you multiply 12 × 2 you also get 24, so let's try that (important: what you do to the bottom, you must also do to the top):

 

× 3

× 2

 

It is now easy to see that 9/24 is smaller than 10/24, (because 9 is smaller than 10).
so 5/12 is the larger fraction.
