### What is the order of 11 over 13 and 5 over 2 and 7 over 3 and 11 over 12?

There are several ways to do this:
The simplest is just using basic comparisons:
5/2 is 2.5
7/3 is also between 2 and 3 but 2.5 times 3 is 7.5. THat is,
7.5/3 would be 2.5 but you have 7/3 which must be smaller.
The numerators for 11/13 and 11/12 are both smaller than their
denominators so these two numbers are smaller than 1. The two
numerators are the same so the smaller denominator gives the bigger
fraction. That is, 11/12 is bigger.
So, in descending order, the numbers are
5/2, 7/3, 11/12 and 11/13.
You could do it the hard way and convert all to decimals, or
convert them all to fractions with a common denominator (156).
