    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.
