Similarly, which is more 1 2 or 1 3 or less?
Fractions are a part of every-day life and they are alsoused in science. A fraction with the same numerator (number on top)as another but with a smaller denominator (number on bottom)is a larger number. For example 1/2 is bigger than1/3 which is bigger than 1/4, etc.
Beside above, how do you tell if fractions are bigger or smaller? If the denominators are the same, then thefraction with the greater numerator is the greaterfraction. The fraction with the lesser numeratoris the lesser fraction. And, as noted above, if thenumerators are equal, the fractions are equivalent. Use <or > to compare the two fractions and .
Hereof, what is the difference between one half and one third?
If the whole is divided into two equal parts, each partis a HALF. A half is obtained by dividing awhole (1) by 2. If the whole is divided into three equal parts,each part is a THIRD. A third is obtained by dividinga whole (1) by 3.
What fraction is bigger 3 4 or 1 2?
As you saw, if two or more fractions havethe same denominator, you can compare them by looking at theirnumerators. As you can see below, 3/4 islarger than 1/4. The larger thenumerator, the larger the fraction.
