How would you solve this problem using mental math (no conversion to decimals, no calculations of common denominators)in ascending order. Explain how you placed each one
1/4
8/9
7/10
9/21
7/16
2/3
2/47
5/6
3/4
3/5
1/13
1/8

Hmmm. Originally it said to use conversion to decimals. Now you say no conversion and no common denominators. Unless you have a really good feel for relative values of fractions, I don't see any tricks to use to sort such a list.
