### How do you find which fraction is bigger when there are different denominators?

There are two main methods. The first is to use the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators to change both fractions to the same denominator. After that, it is simple:the bigger numerator belongs to the bigger fraction. The other method is to cross multiply and compare products. If you want to compare A/B and C/D, then compare AD and BC instead. The numerator of the bigger fraction is in the bigger multiple (shown… Read More
