**Jackie**, Sunday, December 12, 2010 at 8:57pmwell you have to make the fractions have the same denominator so the easiest would probably be to multiply 1/6 by 5/5 to give you 5/30 and then multiply 1/5 by 6/6 to give you 6/30 so you know 1/5 is bigger than 1/6 then you could multiply 2/7 by 5/5 to give you 10/35 and then multiply 1/5 by 7/7 to give you 7/35 so you know 2/7 is bigger than 1/5. so in order from greatest to least it would be 2/7, 1/5, 1/6

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, December 12, 2010 at 9:03pmConvert to decimals by dividing the numerator by the denominator.

Example:

1/6 = 0.166666

1/5 = 42/210

1/6 = 35/210

ORDER: 2/7, 1/5, and 1/6.
