    you can always put both dractions over the same denominator and simply compare the numerators...

    \[\frac{ -1 }{ 3 }*\frac{ 5 }{ 5 }= \frac{ -5 }{ 15 }\]

    since they are both divided by the same denominator, you can just compare the numerators with > < =

    It is better for more strange fractions that arent common
