order the fractions from greates to least. 1/6, 2/7, 1/5.
Can anyone help and explain this to me please

  • math -

    if you find the decimal value for each of these you will be able to easily tell the order.

    for example: the decimal value for the fraction 3/4 is .75

    hope this helps!

  • math -

    well 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

    how would i convert to decimal?

  • math -

    Convert to decimals by dividing the numerator by the denominator.

    Example:
    1/6 = 0.166666

  • math -

    2/7 = 60/210

    1/5 = 42/210

    1/6 = 35/210

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