business and finance interest rates# What fraction is the smallest?

Last Updated: 11th February, 2020

**smallest fraction**, so 1/6 is

**smallest**. Still another method is to convert the

**fractions**to decimals. 1/4 = 0.25, 3/4 = 0.75, 1/5 = 0.2,and 1/6 = 0.1666666666…. .

In this way, how can you tell which fraction is smaller?

Step 1: Compare denominators. If they are different,rewrite one or both **fractions** with a common denominator.Step 2: **Check** the numerators. If the denominators are thesame, then the **fraction** with the greater numerator is thegreater **fraction**.

Subsequently, question is, which is the largest fraction? 1/24, 1/45,1/72 So 1/24 is the greatest of three.stonecold wrote: Which of the following **fractions** is the**largest**? For larger **fraction**, the numerator should belarger (denominators are same) and/or denominator should be smaller(numerators are same). So comparing 1/24, 1/45 and 1/72, we ignore1/45 and 1/72.

Keeping this in consideration, which fraction is bigger 1 2 or 2 3?

A **fraction** with the same numerator (number ontop) as another but with a smaller denominator (number on bottom)is a **larger** number. For example **1/2** is **bigger**than 1/3 which is **bigger** than 1/4, etc. To express a**fraction** as a percentage, find the decimal form and multiplyby 100.

Which fraction is bigger 5 6 or 2 3?

The order is **2/3**, **5/6**, 10/11. For thosesmaller than 1/2, 2/5 is **larger** than 1/4 (numerators threeless than denominators), 1/3 is **larger** than 1/4 (samenumerator), and 2/5 is **larger** than 1/3 (compare usingequivalent **fractions** 6/15 and 5/15). The order is 1/4, 1/3,2/5.
