hey =). ok so give an example problem to give me an idea of what you're struggling with

Well, I am Comparing and Ordering fractions, Mixed Numbers, and Decimals.

ok sure

5 1/3 and 6.7

right, ok

Can you explain it to me.

hahahah homeworkhelpgirl... made a new account

so 5 1/3 means 5 , and then 1/3 of 1

in decimal form, that means 5.333333333

Remember I am only in the 5th grade,,,,

sandra can you help me with regression when you're finished please?

sorry briibaby, too advanced for me!

What?

another way to compare them is to turn them both into fractions

but let's see some other sample problems too

for example, what is bigger, 1/2 or 1/3?

1/3?

nope, it's just the bottom number is bigger. let me show you how to compare

to compare fractions, it helps to find what's called a common denominator

for example, if I asked you what's bigger, 1/3, or 2/3, what would you say?

Wait :) I have some numbers with decimals with them!

but go ahead and post another example with decimals

How do convert fractions into decimals?

well, it's easiest to make it so some power of 10 is on the bottom

I don't understand.

well, 1/10 is another way of writing "one divided by ten"

so 1 divided by 10 is .1

2 divided by 10 is .2

I just move the point one to the left

so there are two ways to compare a decimal and a fraction

one way would be to convert the fraction to a decimal - and then compare them

another way would be to convert the decimal to a fraction, and then compare those fractions

I imagine they want you to learn the second approach
