6th grade fraction comparisons

posted by .

Which numbr is greater than 3/4.
The possible answers are 75/100 , 11/12, 2/3 or 3/8.

I thought that I would try the method of making the denominator the same by the lcd.

75/100 is equal to 3/4

mult denom/number by 3 and got 9/12
so don't know how to compare 11/12

not sure how to compare the 2/3 and 3/8

    Look at the fractions. 75/100 = each number is divisible by 25 = 3/4 (the same) / 11/12 = take 3/4 X 3 = 9/12 (that is smaller than 11/12 / 2/3 = take that x 4 = 8/12 (smaller than 9/12 / 3/8 = 2 x 3/4 = 6/8 and THAT is larger than 3/8

    You were on the right track but just needed to go further.
