The operation of sorting fractions in ascending order:
^{- 50}/_{12}, ^{- 25}/_{12}, ^{- 16}/_{36}
Analyze the fractions to be compared and ordered, by category:
negative improper fractions with equal denominators: - ^{50}/_{12}, - ^{25}/_{12};
1 negative proper fraction: - ^{16}/_{36};
How to sort and order fractions by categories:
Any negative improper fraction is smaller than
any negative proper fraction
Sort the negative improper fractions:
- ^{50}/_{12} and - ^{25}/_{12}
The fractions have the same denominator, compare their numerators.
The larger the numerator the smaller the negative fraction.
The fractions sorted in ascending order:
- ^{50}/_{12} < - ^{25}/_{12}
