Comparing Fractions Worksheets
How Do You Compare Fractions? Comparing fractions is one of the few struggles of students in grades 1, 2, 3, and 4. However, there are a few essential tips and tricks that make this a lot easier what most students might think. When two fractions are in place, there a few tricks that can help you compare them with each other. This trick can help you identify which one is the bigger one. For example, let's compare 3/8 with 4/9. You multiply the numerator of the first fractions by the denominator of the second fraction. Now compare the answers of the two. 3 x 9 = 27, 4 x 8 = 32. Since 32 is the larger number than 27, we know that 4/9 is a far greater number than 3/8. You need to make sure that your answer related to the numerator. So, in this example, 27 was related to 3/8, and 32 was related to 4/9. Hence, between the two fractions, 4/9 is greater.
