Compare:

When your comparing fractions, to tell which one is bigger you can find a denominator that they both have like if it's 3/4 and 7/10 you can multiply 3/4 by 10 (multiply the numerator and the denominator). You will get 30/40, now you must multiply 7/10 by 4 then you'll get 21/40. Now you can compare it

30/40 21/40

30/40 is bigger you now know 3/4 is bigger than 7/10

Ordering: 3/6, 4/12, 1/3, 3/5, 8/10

If your ordering fractions you can make them all have the same denominator.

3/6 X10 4/12 X 5 1/3 X 20 3/5 X 12 8/10 X 6

30/60 20/60 20/60 36/60 48/60

order now

20/60, 20/60, 30/60, 36/60, 48/60

be sure to change it back

1/3, 4/12, 3/6, 3/5, 8/10
