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.

All new users please search "Saveyou's unhelpful guide to KW", it will teach you all about what to expect. It should've gotten stickied, if you ask me.

I think 3/9 is the largest... but I can't be sure.

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

Oh okay. I did this but I wasn't sure if I was right.

u gotta add both numbers together then divide that number by the number on the left and thats how you do it

add me friends

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