What are the Comparing Fractions?

Comparing fractions is a method to compare two fractions. The fraction comparison is done by multiplying the numerator and denominator with a common number to get the same value.

Then, the larger one is considered to be greater than the other. When 2 fractions have the same denominator, the one with the larger numerator is greater.

How to compare fractions?

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):

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.
