**marko pls help**, Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at 9:30pmso all but #2 is wrong i see what i did now on # 2 and agree should be <

as:

-3/4 becomes -0.75

-3/8 becomes -0.375

so -0.75 < -0.375

right?

im really confused because i posted this question earlier and someone else just replied and said all my answers are wrong. so now im confused if im right or wrong?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at 9:45pmFrom your above ....

opps sorry i did it again

it should be - 3/4 > -3/8

NO!

Your way, (the way your teacher showed you)

-3/4 = -.75

-3/8 = -.375

Now which is farthest to the right, that is the larger, so

-.375 > -.75 or -3/8 > -3/4

My way, the way I showed you in the other post

3/4 ....... 3/8

3/4 > 3/8

-3/4 < - 3/8
