# Explain how you know that 7/12 is greater than 1/3 but less than 2/3

Multiply the 3's in 1/3 and 2/3 by 4 to set the denominators equal, then do the same with the numerators.

1/3 = 4/12
7/12
2/3= 8/12
Because, 7/12, is more than half complete, 1/3, is less than half complete, and 2/3 is more complete than both of them. If you want a better answer, im pretty sure you can find a fraction to percentage calculator online.

The easiest way to compare fractions is by having a common denominator for both fractions.

This is because, when the denominator is the same in both fractions, we will simply compare the numerators and the greater fraction will be the one having greater numerator

Part 1:

The first given fraction is

The second given fraction is

We can make the denominator in the second one equal to 12 by multiplying it by 4.

However, to preserve the value of the fraction, we will multiply it by

This will give us:

* =

Now, the two fractions became and

The denominator is the same, so we will compare numerators.

Since 7 is greater than 4, therefore:

is the greater fraction

Part 2:

The first given fraction is

The second given fraction is

We can make the denominator in the second one equal to 12 by multiplying it by 4.

However, to preserve the value of the fraction, we will multiply it by

This will give us:

* =

Now, the two fractions became and

The denominator is the same, so we will compare numerators.

Since 8 is greater than 7, therefore:

is the greater fraction

Hope this helps :)

Step-by-step explanation: You would first have to make them into decimals and then compare the fractions so 7/12= 0.583... 1/3= 0.33 and 2/3= 0.66...

Now compare: 0.583 is greater then 0.33, but 0.583 is less then 0.66. Get it?

it just is..

Step-by-step explanation:

convert all of these to a common denominator:
7/12 , 1/3 , 2/3
---
7/12 = 7/12
1/3 = 4/12
2/3 = 8/12
---
place into compound inequality:
---
(1/3=4/12) < (7/12=7/12) < (2/3=8/12)

7/12
1/3=4/12
2/3=8/12

7/12>1/3
7/12<2/3
7/12 is greater than 1/3 but less than 2/3.
in order to find if this is true, you need to find the common denominator which is 12. in order for 1/3 to have a denominator of 12, you need to multiply by 4. but we all know the rule. whatever we do to the bottom needs to be done to the top, so 1/3 is = 4/12. 7/12 is greater than 4/12. we do the same to 2/3 and multiply the denominator by 4 and the numerator by 4 as well, and the result would be 8/12. if we compare, 7/12 is less than 8/12.

Step-by-step explanation:

7/12 is greater than 1/3 because it has a greater numerator and denominator it is less than 2/3 because the numerator is smaller
