 Method When the denominators are common we simply compare the numerators. 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 Directions: Compare the following fractions. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
