## Practice Comparing & Ordering Fractions

Instructions:

Answer 7/10 questions correctly to pass.

Problem:

Correct! Not Correct! Comparing Fractions with unlike denominators:

1. When the numerators are equal, the fraction with the smaller denominator is larger
2. When the numerators are not equal:
3. Find the cross products:
• Multiply the denominator of the left fraction by the numerator of the right fraction
• Multiply the denominator of the right fraction by the numerator of the left fraction
4. The numerator from the larger product belongs to the larger fraction
5. The numerator from the smaller product belongs to the smaller fraction
6. If the cross products are equal, the fractions are equal

Ordering Fractions:

1. Find the LCD of all denominators
2. Change each fraction into an equivalent fraction where the LCD is its denominator
3. Compare numerators in pairs:
• The larger numerator belongs to the larger fraction
• The smaller numerator belongs to the smaller fraction
