  • algebra compare rational numbers - ,

    #2 is 3/4 > 3/8

  • algebra compare rational numbers - ,

    so 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?

    opps sorry i did it again
    it should be - 3/4 > -3/8

  • algebra compare rational numbers - ,

    so i do have them all wrong?

  • algebra compare rational numbers - ,

    From 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
