How To: Compare fractions

Compare fractions

A short video teaching you how to compare fractions. Starting with two fraction like three fourths and two over twelve. You cross multiply the denominator or the bottom number of three fourths which is 4 with the numerator or the top number of the second fraction which is 2. So the 8 that you come up with goes under the two twelfths. Now you do the same for the two fraction this time multiplying the denominator 12 with the numerator 3 coming up with 36. So now you have 36 under three fourths and 8 under two twelfths. So we compare each number to see if the fractions are greater than, less than, or equal to each other. In this case three fourths is greater than two twelfths.
