compare the fractions. All can be written as 12ths.
3/12; 2/12 (which is 1/6); and 4/12 (which is 1/3).
now put them in order...
2/12, 3/12, 4/ 12 
i don't know

I have a fourth grader who has the same problem on his homework

I think that 1/3 than 1/6 and last 3/12

ADM used the three fractions to make a circle graph and colored each a different color. What fraction of the graph is not colored? Explain your answer
