I'm a 5th grader and I'm having a hard time writing the above fractions in order. They are 3/10, 1, 1/4, 5/8, 2/3, 1/8, 5/6, 3/4, 0, 1/6, 7/8, 1/3? Am I suppose to find the least common denominator first?

  1. Finding the least common denominator and converting these fractions to equivalent fractions is one way to know how to put them in order.

    Another way is to use a calculator. Divide the numerator by the denominator, and convert them to decimals.
