1.43 Fractions (Greater Lesser or Equal)

Method
  1. When the denominators are common we simply compare the numerators.
  2. When the denominators are different, we find Least Common denominator and then compare the numerators.
Example: Which is bigger 1/2 or 1/5
In the above problem the denominators are different.
Denominators are made common.
List out the multiples of 2 - 2,4, 6, 8,10.
List out the multiples of 5 - 5, 10, 15, 20.
Common multiple is 10 and hence the LCM.
Multiply and divide each fraction by the LCM
1/2 x 10/10 = 5/10
1/5 x 10/10 = 2/10
The denominators are made common.
Hence 1/2 = 5/10 and 1/5 = 2/10
Hence 1/2 is greater than 1/5
Answer: 1/2
