Here is the confusing part. In front of all of the fractions, you have a dash (this thing, -) Youʻre making all of them negative, meaning none of them are greater than 4/7, which is positive. Is this a mistake, or intentional?
ShadowLegendX
  • ShadowLegendX
That dash represents a negative sign

Why do you think b and d are the answer? a.-1/2 --->b-5/8 c-2/3 --->d-6/11
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

because the denominater is bigger
ShadowLegendX
  • ShadowLegendX
What you have to do is to convert the fractions, to compare them to see which one is bigger. -4/7 vs -1/2 Convert -8/14 vs -7/14 Which one is bigger?
ShadowLegendX
  • ShadowLegendX
Also, the way I converted is, I brought both fractions to a common denominator, but they still represent the same value
ShadowLegendX
  • ShadowLegendX
For example, I brought -1/2 to -7/14 by multiply the numerator and denominator of -1/2 by 7, bringing it up to -7/14. But 7 is half of 14, and so it still represents -1/2. It just makes it easier to compare the fractions

oh yes thanks i got it
ShadowLegendX
  • ShadowLegendX
The bigger the negative number, the smaller in value it is. For example, I will use a whole number. -1 is bigger than -2 as -2 is more farther down the negative side of the number line |dw:1450216761347:dw|
ShadowLegendX
  • ShadowLegendX
The farther down the right side of the number line you go, the smaller the number is in value.

I gtg to my next period, good luck
