- 2/3 can be written as -8/12
is that greater than -7/12?
Ohh. So can A be the answer?
a can also be shown as 9/12
i thimk you might be guessing what is -3/4 as a fraction over 12?
@Nivux - dont forget the negative
oh thanks so much @welshfella i totally missed that sorry both of you guys
so a can be shown as -9/12
And sorry again
yes and thats is less than -7/12 so its not A
the other 2 b and d are not so easy to compare with -7/12
i suggest you convert -7/12 to a fraction over 36 and do the same with -13/18 to compare with B
-7/12 * 3/3 = -21/36
now multiply -13/18 by 2/2
right so comparing -26/36 with -21/36 which is greater?
note we have negatives here
- 13/18 ?
- I had a brainstorm then No - 21/36 or -7/12 is greater
d is correct note with negative numbers the smaller numerator is greater
It'd help a LOT if you'd please graph the fractions mentioned here. Larger fractions are always on the right; smaller fractions are always on the left. Please, no guessing.
-2 is greater than -3
Yes, that's right. welshfella, could you graph that as a demo? thank you.
