Posted by Suzanne on Friday, June 10, 2011 at 12:56am.

Jane is using a recipe to bake cookies.Recipe calls fo a little less than 1/2 of choc chips. Which amount is less than 1/2?

4/8 2/3 4/7 3/7
off the top of my head I see that 4/8 is equal

should I use ldc and make
2/3 4/6
4/7 8/14
3/7 6/14

then what?? should I reduce??

then I will be back to
2/3
4/7
3/7
with the differet denominator and cant tell which one is smaller
