What is a Fraction?

In Mathematics, we use a fraction to represent the part of the whole collection of an object or thing. It is a number which is less than one and which represents each equal part of the whole.

A fraction always has 2 parts, namely numerator and denominator. They are divided with a line called the fraction line. The number on the top of the line is called the numerator. The number under the fraction line is called the denominator.

How to Compare Fractions

When we write compare fractions, we write them side by side. Later we add a sign between them. The sign is either less than or greater than or an equal to sign. Then we perform multiplication upon the numerator in the 1st fraction by the denominator in the 2nd fraction. Then we multiply once again, the numerator of the second fraction times the denominator in the first fraction. If the number next to the second fraction is greater than the second fraction is larger. Otherwise it’s the first one.

Comparing Fractions with the Same Numerator (Implementation)

Before understanding the simple trick to compare fractions with the same numerator, it is important to It is important to remember that comparisons are only valid when the two given fractions refer to the same exact whole.

The key point of comparing fractions with the same numerator is simply to compare their denominators, The fraction which has the bigger denominator is the smaller fraction, Because the numerators are equivalent, they have same number of parts, so the fractions with the larger individual parts is naturally the greater.

Let us do an example exercise. In the following three fractions, which one is the smallest? 2/9, 2/6, or 2/5? Since the numerators are all same (2) we only need to compare the denominators. The denominators are 9, 6, and 5. It is easily understandable that 9 is the largest denominator, thus, the smallest fraction is 2/9. Please check out other relevant math resources for kids Here.
