ARRANGING FRACTION IN ASCENDING ORDER

__ARRANGING FRACTION IN ASCENDING ORDER -__

**Ordering Fractions
in Ascending Order With Same Denominators -**

**For the fractions
having the same denominator, the fraction with the smallest
numerator is the smallest.**

__Example:__ Arrange 3⁄7, 2⁄7, 5⁄7, 1⁄7 in ascending order and descending order.

**Comparing the numerators, we get 1 < 2 < 3 < 5 **

**Therefore, 1⁄7 < 2⁄7 < 3⁄7 < 5⁄7 in ascending**

**and, 5/7 > 3/7 > 2/7 > 1/7 in descending order.**

**Ordering Fractions in Ascending Order With Same Numerators -**

**When the fractions
have the same numerator, the fraction with the highest
denominator is the smallest.**

__Example:__ Arrange 3⁄7 , 3⁄8 , 3⁄5 , 3⁄4 in ascending order and descending order.

**Here, the numerator is 3 in all the fractions. So, we compare the denominator. On comparing the denominators,
we get: 4 < 5 < 7 < 8**

**Therefore, 3⁄8 < 3⁄7 < 3⁄5 < 3⁄4 in ascending order**

**and, 3/4 > 3/5 > 3/7 > 3/8 in descending order**
