** In this post , we will learn about the comparison of two or more fractions, or arrangement of the fractions in the increasing or decreasing order, finding the largest /smallest fraction.**

**Type-1 : When the numerator and denominator of the fractions increases by a constant value, then last fraction is largest fraction. **

**Consider for examples**

Example 1:

1/2 , 2/3 , 3/4

Largest fraction is 3/4 .

Example 2 :

1/ 7 , 7/14 , 13/21

Largest fraction is 13/21 .

**Type 2 : The fraction whose numerator after cross-wise multiplication gives the greater value is the greater.**

Example 1 :

Which is the greatest ?

7/9 and 8/17

Performing the cross-wise multiplication , we get 7 x 17 and 9 x 8

7 x 17 = 119 and 9 x 8 = 72

Now ,find the product which is greater , here we have 119 ; therefore 7 /9 is greater compared to 8/17.

** I will be posting more about it in my future post . Stay tuned 🙂**
