 Feb 08, 2013 Ordering Fractions by: Staff Answer Yes. The seven fractions in the problem statement are properly arranged from least to greatest. There are three good ways to help you arrange any fractions from least to greatest: 1. Rewrite all fractions so that they each have the same denominator 2. Change all fractions into their decimal equivalent. 3. Plot the fractions on a number line ----------------------------- 1. Rewrite all of the fractions so that they each have the same denominator (just as you would if you were adding or subtracting the fractions) 1/6, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 5/6 (1/6) × (2/2) = 2/12 (1/4) × (3/3) = 3/12 (1/3) × (4/4) = 4/12 (1/2) × (6/6) = 6/12 (2/3) × (4/4) = 8/12 (3/4) × (3/3) = 9/12 (5/6) × (2/2) = 10/12 when the fractions all have the same denominator, they can easily be arranged from least to greatest 2/12, 3/12, 4/12, 6/12, 8/12, 9/12, 10/12 Therefore: 1/6, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 5/6 2. Change all fractions into their decimal equivalent. (1/6) = 0.1666666667 (1/4) = 0.25 (1/3) = 0.3333333333 (1/2) = 0.5 (2/3) = 0.6666666667 (3/4) = 0.75 (5/6) = 0.8333333333 the decimal values can easily be arranged from least to greatest 0.1666666667, 0.25, 0.3333333333, 0.5, 0.6666666667, 0.75, 0.8333333333 Therefore: 1/6, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 5/6 3. Plot the fractions on a number line Thanks for writing. Staff www.solving-math-problems.com
