# What’s the largest fraction in each group? a. 5⁄6 and 29⁄36 b. 5⁄12 and 3⁄8 c. 2⁄5 and 19⁄45 d. 5⁄7, 13⁄14, and 19⁄21 e. 7⁄11 and 9⁄121 f. 1⁄2, 3⁄18, and 4⁄9

Accepted Solution

A:

Imagine a cake. OK? Now divide the cake in 2 equal pieces, each one is ½ of the cake.

Now divide each piece in 2 halves; each one is ¼ of the cake. Witch is largest? 1:2=0,5; 1:4=0,25. 0,5>0,25.

5:6=0,83333

29:36=0,80555

0,83>0,80 so 5/6 is the largest.

Do this for each group.

a.5/6

b.5/8

c.19/45

d.13/14

e.7/11

f.1/2
