which farction is closet in vaule to 1 ?
A.3/5 B.2/3 C.1/2 D.7/10
I suggest you convert these fractions to decimals. Then you can easily determine their relative values.
Convert all the fractions to fractions with the same denominator, using the LCD.
Now, wouldn't the largest fraction be closest in value to 1?
think about it pleaase?
We will not give you the answer. But helper and I gave you two different ways of finding the answer.
How did you get 1/2?
1/2 is only half away from 1 whole
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
Apparently we're not able to help you. Please ask you teacher to explain this problem to you.
7/10 as when divided equals o.7 which is closer to 1.
7/10 = 21/30
That's the largest fraction and is closest to 1.
