posted by Anonymous .
Carolyn spent 3/4 of an hour on her math homework, 5/6 of an hour on history, and 5/12 of an hour on science.
Which of the following is a true statement;
a.)5/6<5/12, b.)5/12<3/4, c.)5/6<3/4, d.)5/12>3/4

change them to common denominators. I will do a, c for you.
a) 10/12<5/12 ?
b)
c) 10/12<9/12 ?
d)
so you see, a, c are not true. Duh. 
b.)5/12<3/4,
