I am trying to remember how to figure out which fraction is the greatest/least. Do i have to find the common denominator? An example would be 1/4, 3/8, 6/10, 1/7 ... kind of like this, only many more ... Thank you.

You have two ways of figuring out which order they should be.

One is to find the common denominator and convert all of the fractions to equivalent fractions.

The other way is to find their decimal equivalents.

Can you please explain to me how to change them into decimals? The fractions i used are just made up so you can use any fraction you would like to show me. Thank you.

Use a calculator and divide the numerator by the denominator.

1/4 = 0.25

3/8 = 0.375
