    I suggest you convert these fractions to decimals. Then you can easily determine their relative values.

  • math - ,

    Convert all the fractions to fractions with the same denominator, using the LCD.

    A. 18/30
    B. 20/30
    C. 15/30
    D. 21/30

    Now, wouldn't the largest fraction be closest in value to 1?

    What???

    We will not give you the answer. But helper and I gave you two different ways of finding the answer.

  • math - ,

    1/2

  • math - ,

    How did you get 1/2?

  • math - ,

    1/2 is only half away from 1 whole

  • math - ,

    1/2 is the farthest from 1 whole. Th other three are closer. Using the equivalents that helper posted, which one is closest to 1?

    Hint: 30/30 = 1

  • math - ,

    3/5

  • math - ,

    Apparently we're not able to help you. Please ask you teacher to explain this problem to you.

  • math - ,

    7/10 as when divided equals o.7 which is closer to 1.

  • math - ,

    Right.

    7/10 = 21/30

    That's the largest fraction and is closest to 1.
