### MEAP Preparation - Grade 6 Mathematics2.28 Comparing Fractions

 Method: Read the fractions given. Arrange the fractions in either ascending or descending order. If the fractions are like, then we just compare the numerators. If the fractions are unlike, they are compared using LCM. Of the two fractions having the same denominator, the one with greater numerator is greater. Of the two fractions having the same numerator, the one with greater denominator is smaller. Example: 1/7 _ 2/7 The above is a pair of like fractions. Comparing the numerators, 1/7 < 2/7 Answer: < Example: 5/3 _ 3/4 The above is a pair of unlike fractions. Find the LCM of 3 and 4. LCM is 12. We then compare 20/12, 9/12. Hence 5/3 > 3/4. Answer: > Directions: Compare the following fractions. Also write at least 5 examples of your own.
 Q 1: If you have two fractions with same numerator and different denominators, then which fraction is greater?the fraction with greater denominatorthe fraction with least denominator Q 2: Compare 1/4 _____2/3 (hint: LCM=12 equivalent fractions: 1/4=3/12 and 2/3=8/12. Hence compare 3/12 ____8/12)<=> Q 3: Compare 2/3 ______ 1 (hint: 1=3/3)=>< Q 4: You can compare two fractions that have the same denominator by comparing the numerators.TrueFalse Q 5: To compare fractions with different denominators, first find the LCM of the two denominators and then write both fractions as equivalent fractions that have LCM as denominator.FalseTrue Q 6: Compare 4/5 ___8/10 (hint: equivalent fractions are equal)=<> Question 7: This question is available to subscribers only!
