### MEAP Preparation - Grade 5 Mathematics1.60 Ascending and Descending Order

 Method: Compare the given fractions. Ascending Order- Arranging in increasing order (smaller to bigger using < sign). Descending Order - Arranging in decreasing order (bigger to smaller using > sign). To compare like fractions: Look at the value of numerators and arrange accordingly. To compare unlike fractions: Make the denominators common by finding LCM and then compare. Example: 1/2, 5/2, 7/2 Arrange in descending order. Since they are like fractions, compare the numerators. 7>5>1 Hence 7/2 > 5/2 > 1/2 Answer: 7/2, 5/2, 1/2 Example : 5/3, 1/2, 3/4 Arrange in ascending order. These fractions are not like fractions. Find LCM of the 3, 2 and 4 Multiples of 3 - 3, 6, 9, 12 Multiples of 2 - 2, 4, 6, 8, 10,12 Multiples of 4 - 4, 8, 12 Common multiple is 12 and hence the LCM LCM is 12. Multiply and divide each fraction by LCM 5/3 x 12/12 = 20/12 1/2 x 12/12 = 6/12 3/4 x 12/12 = 9/12 From the above 6/12<9/12<20/12 Hence 1/2<3/4<5/3 Answer: 1/2, 3/4, 5/3 Directions: Arrange the following in ascending or descending order. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
