## Related Questions  Convert them to decimals and order them least to greatest. convert fractions to decimal then just compare them,and then put them in order!:) You cannot compare fractions by using the GCF since GCF determines the common factors of both fractions. Instead, use the LCD to compare the fractions. Find the LCM of the denominator terms of the fractions. Then, obtain the fractions with the common denominators. Finally, compare the numerator values to determine which fraction is the greatest/least. Greatest on a list of proper fractions, least on a list of improper fractions.    Get each fraction to have a common denominator, and then sort the fractions from least to greatest based on the numerators. Find the equivalent fractions with the same denominator (the least common multiple) and then compare the numerators. It's impossible to list all fractions, because there are no least or greatest fractions. In addition, between any two fractions, there's another fraction (for example, the average of the two functions). You can compare similar fractions by looking at their numerators. You can compare dissimilar fractions by converting them to similar fractions and looking at their numerators. You can convert a dissimilar fraction to a similar fraction by finding the least common denominator. The order of these fractions from least to greatest is 2/5, 2/3, and 3/4. you have to find like denominators and then you order them from least to greatest by there numerators   You either convert the fractions to a common denominator, and then compare, or you convert them to their decimal equivalent and then compare. The latter can quickly be done with a calculator. Usually smallest to largest, least to greatest. you can find the least common denominator and then order them. You can order fractions by finding the percentage (top divided by bottom multiplied by 100). You determine the least to greatest in decimals by using their leftmost unit. The decimal 0.2 is less than 0.3. To determine fractions, you need to first convert them to decimals. think of it as money. you could do that with decimals too. Least common multiple is needed to find the least common denominator when adding or subtracting fractions with different denominators Greatest common factor is needed when reducing fractions to their lowest terms The numbers from least to greatest are: 2 over 10, 1/2, 0.6 and 0.9 (which is equal to 9 over 10). Convert all the fractions to decimals to compare. Ordering fractions is putting them in order, usually least to greatest, smallest to largest. In order to determine whether a fraction is larger or smaller than another one, it is necessary to compare them. This is done by determining a common denominator and comparing the numerators.
