Sometimes it is easier to use a common denominator. In some cases, it is easier to cnvert all fractions to decimals. It depends on the compexity

of the fractions and the background of the student nvolved. In this case it is easy to convert to a common denominator:

7/16

5/8 = 10/16

3/4 - 12/16

Now we know the fraction with the largest numerator is greatest.

ORDER: 12/16, 10/16, 7/16.
