    Find common denominators. Whichever has the biggest denominator is the largest fraction

    find common denominators, whichever has the biggest NUMERATOR (the one on top) after that is the larger fraction. for example: 1/2 vs 2/3 can both be put into 6 so it's essentially: 3/6 vs 4/6 which is bigger?
