1 EXAMPLE 2 Standardized Test Practice SOLUTION Find the least common denominator of the fractions. The LCM of 16, 4, and 8 is 16, so the LCD is 16. STEP 1 STEP 2 Use the least common denominator to write equivalent fractions.

2 EXAMPLE 2 Standardized Test Practice = = = 35 8 = = STEP 3 Compare the numerators: 70 < 71, 71 < 76, so and < < = ANSWER From least to greatest, the numbers are, and The correct answer is D.

3 EXAMPLE 3 Comparing Mixed Numbers SOLUTION Write equivalent fractions using the LCD, 35. STEP 1 Orangutans A female orangutan is about is about feet tall. Which of the two orangutans is taller? feet tall. A male

4 EXAMPLE 3 Comparing Mixed Numbers = 24 7 = = = 17 5 = = The female orangutan is taller. ANSWER STEP 2 Compare the fractions: > ,so 3 7 >

5 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 Copy and complete the statement with, or = ?. 3 Because <, you can write ANSWER <

6 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and 3 Copy and complete the statement with, or = ? ANSWER Because, you can write > >

7 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and Copy and complete the statement with, or = ? ANSWER Because, you can write 16 6 < < 17 6

8 GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 2 and Order the numbers, and from least to greatest ANSWER From least to greatest the numbers are : , and 2 7 9
