Sue, we are trying to understand this ordering fractions from least to greatest, 1/2 3/4 4/6 . I don't understand about change the denominator to 12?

  • math 4th grade - ,

    You need to find the smallest number that is divisible by 2, 4, and 6. That's 12 -- so the common denominator is 12.

    Study this site for information about how to change to equivalent fractions.

    3/4 = 9/12
