 Comparing Fractions Calculator is used to compare two fractions to find which of the given fraction is greater or lesser than the other.

## Steps for Comparing Fractions

Step 1 :

We compare fractions with different denominators to find a common denominator .

Step 2 :

To compare fractions $\frac{a}{b}$ and $\frac{c}{d}$, we need to convert into $\frac{ad}{bd}$ and $\frac{bc}{bd}$.

## Example Problems on Comparing Fractions Calculator

1. ### The fractions $\frac{3}{4}$ is greater than $\frac{2}{4}$.

Step 1 :

The first cross-product is the product of the first numerator and the second denominator: 4 * 3 = 12.

The second cross-product is the product of the second numerator and the first denominator: 4 * 2 = 8.

Step 2 :

4 * 3 = 12.

4 * 2 = 8.

So $\frac{3}{4}$ > $\frac{2}{4}$;

Yes

2. ### The fractions $\frac{5}{18}$ is greater than $\frac{4}{17}$.

Step 1 :

The first cross-product is the product of the first numerator and the second denominator: 5 * 17 = 85.

The second cross-product is the product of the second numerator and the first denominator: 4 * 18 = 72.

Step 2 :

5 * 17 = 85.

4 * 18 = 72.

So $\frac{5}{18}$ > $\frac{4}{17}$.
