How to order fractions?

Greatest to least

There are two methods to order fractions. We can arrange them by converting all fractions to decimals and then compare them. In second method, we arrange fractions by taking least common denominator (LCD).

Here we will discuss fractions to decimal method to order fractions without using a number organizer.

Example:

Arrange the following fractions in ascending and descending order.

2/4, 5/2, 3/7, 9/4, 6/5

Solution:

Step 1: Convert all fractions to decimals to put these numbers in order.

2/4 = 0.5

5/2 = 2.5

3/7 = 0.42

9/4 = 2.25

6/5 = 1.2

Step 2: Compare all decimal values and arrange them accordingly.

Ascending Order = 0.42, 0.5, 1.2, 2.25, 2.5

Write the corresponding fractions in the same order.

Ascending Order = 3/7, 2/4, 6/5, 9/4, 5/2

Descending Order = 2.5, 2.25, 1.2, 0.5, 0.42

Place the corresponding fractions.

Descending Order = 5/2, 9/4, 6/5, 2/4, 3/7
