Compare and order the following fractions from least to greatest 5/4,5/12,5/6
To answer this question you can find a common denominator for the three fractions and then compare them:
5/4 = 15/12
5/6 = 10/12
5/12 = 5/12
So, comparing the above, ordered from least to greatest is 5/12, 5/6, 5/4.
You could also glance at the fractions and see that 5/4 is the only improper fraction, so it is greater than 1, while the other two are less than 1. So, 5/4 is the largest of the three fractions.
If you compare the other two fractions, 5/6 with 5/12, you see that the numerators are the same. That means that the fraction with the larger denominator is the smaller of those two fractions.
