I have three fractions ( 5/12, 3/9 and 4/7 )
I'm supposed to figure out which one is the largest fraction but I'm not sure how.

Well, since fractions mean divide, divide the numbers, so that way it's integers and decimals you are working with and not fractions.  E.g.  That first fraction would be 5÷12.

My whole goal in life is to get AlphaT to debate Teh_Skittlez as an Atheist and for Teh_Skittlez to debate AlphaT as a Christian.

lolololololololol

That awkward moment when you realize that you couldn't see that amazing debate because you're not old enough to see the P&R section... -.-

4/7....
Well 3/9 = 1/3... I think is = 0.33....
Now 12/2=6 and  5<6     and I mean...is  less than 1/2....
now...  7/2= 3.5 and 3.5>4 and 3.5/7 would be 1/2.... so  4/7>3.5 and  4/7>1/2
I hope it helped
and u know... if the number below is greater... It means u will divide the cake into more parts...
1/1 one cake for one person   1/5 one cake for 5 ppl!!! D: The cake is mine tho xD

Divide the numerator by the denominator. And use the decimals to determine which is bigger.
