## How to compare two fractions?

### 1. Fractions that have different signs:

• Any positive fraction is larger than any negative fraction:
• ie: 4/25 > - 19/2

### 2. A proper and an improper fraction:

• Any positive improper fraction is larger than any positive proper fraction:
• ie: 44/25 > 1 > 19/200
• Any negative improper fraction is smaller than any negative proper fraction:
• ie: - 44/25 < -1 < - 19/200

### 3. Fractions that have both like numerators and denominators:

• The fractions are equal:
• ie: 89/50 = 89/50

### 4. Fractions that have unlike (different) numerators but like (equal) denominators.

• Positive fractions: compare the numerators, the larger fraction is the one with the larger numerator:
• ie: 24/25 > 19/25
• Negative fractions: compare the numerators, the larger fraction is the one with the smaller numerator:
• ie: - 19/25 < - 17/25

### 5. Fractions that have unlike (different) denominators but like (equal) numerators.

• Positive fractions: compare the denominators, the larger fraction is the one with the smaller denominator:
• ie: 24/25 > 24/26
• Negative fractions: compare the denominators, the larger fraction is the one with the larger denominator:
• ie: - 17/25 < - 17/29

### 6. Fractions that have different denominators and numerators (unlike denominators and numerators).

• To compare them, fractions should be built up to the same denominator (or if it's easier, to the same numerator).
