put fractions in order from least to greatest, explain how you got the answer

3/4 1/2 1/4 2/3

• math -

First find the common denominator.

12 is the smallest number that 4, 2, and 3 go into.

3/4 = 9/12
1/2 = 6/12
1/4 = 3/12
2/3 = 8/12

Now you can put them into order.

• math -

1/4 < 1/2 < 2/3 < 3/4

Give them a common denominator of 12 (because that's the "Least Common Multiple" of 2,3 and 4):

3/12 < 6/12 < 8/12 < 9/12
