Comparing fractions can be a tricky business, but there are a few simple rules that can help make the process a little easier. The first thing to remember is that fractions represent a part of a whole, so the larger the fraction, the larger the part.

To compare fractions, you first need to find a common denominator. This is the lowest number that both fractions will divide into evenly. Once you have the common denominator, you can compare the numerators (the top number in a fraction) to see which fraction is larger.

For example, let’s say you’re comparing the fractions ¾ and 1/6. The common denominator here is 12, so when we compare the numerators, we get 9 (3 x 3) for ¾ and 2 (1 x 2) for 1/6. Because 9 is greater than 2, we can say that ¾ is larger than 1/6.

If you’re still having trouble comparing fractions, don’t worry – there are plenty of resources out there to help, including websites, apps, and books. With a little practice, you’ll be a pro in no time!

There are a lot of different ways to compare fractions, but in this blog post, we’re going to compare fractions by looking at the numerator and denominator. In other words, we want to know which fraction has a bigger numerator, and which fraction has a bigger denominator.

When we compare the fractions 5 by 7 and 3 by 4, we can see that 5 is bigger than 3, and 7 is bigger than 4. Therefore, the fraction 5 by 7 is bigger than the fraction 3 by 4.
