Don't know how to compare
101 2/18 to 102 89/1000

47 8/13 to 47 4/7

17/8 to 16/5

  • Math -

    101 2/18 to 102 89/1000

    Both fractional parts are proper, and 101 is less than 102, so 101 2/18 < 102 89/1000.

    47 8/13 to 47 4/7
    Here the integral parts are equal, so compare the fractions
    8/13 and 4/7
    convert denominators to a common denominator (13*7)=91 and adjust the numerators
    8/13 = 8*7/(13*7)=56/91
    4/7 = 13*4/(13*7)=52/91
    56/91 > 52/91, so 8/13 > 4/7
    So 47 8/13 > 47 4/7

    17/8 to 16/5
    convert to number fractions
    17/8 = 2 1/8
    16/5 = 3 1/5
    Which one is bigger?
