**Ms. Sue**, Friday, January 28, 2011 at 6:35pmI suggest you convert these fractions to decimals. Then you can easily determine their relative values.

**helper**, Friday, January 28, 2011 at 6:36pmConvert 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?

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, January 28, 2011 at 7:04pmHow did you get 1/2?

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, January 28, 2011 at 7:12pm1/2 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

7/10 = 21/30

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