Title: Compare Fractions

1
Compare Fractions
• SWBAT compare fractions with like denominators
and fractions with unlike denominators

Think Share with a partner
• What steps would you take if I asked you to
compare (tell me which one is bigger) the
following fractions?
• 7/8 or ¾
• Least Common Denominator (LCD)
• The LCM of the two denominators

3
Comparing Fractions
• If they have the same denominator (same size
pieces) compare the numerators.
• If they have different denominators, find the
LCD, and rename the fractions
• Then compare the numerators.

Examples
• 7/8 and 5/8
• 14/30 and 26/30
• 3/5 and 1/4
• ¾ and 1/10
