**Comparing Fractions Using Their Decimal Equivalents**

Step 1 Change each fraction to a decimal. Numerator ÷ Denominator (Top Number) ÷ (Bottom Number)

3
**Comparing Fractions Using Their Decimal Equivalents**

Step 2 Compare the decimals.

4
**Next, compare the decimals.**

Example #1 ~ Compare these fractions. 4 ÷ 5 = 3 ÷ 7 = 0.8 0.428 Next, compare the decimals.

5
Comparing Decimals 1 Line up the decimal points. Use zeros to make an equal number of decimal places. 0.800 0.428

6
Comparing Decimals 2 Start by comparing the greatest place. Find the first place where the digits are different. 0.800 0.428

7
**Compare the values of the digits.**

Comparing Decimals 3 Compare the values of the digits. 0.8 is greater than 0.4 So, 0.8 >

8
**The greater than symbol can be placed between these fractions.**

Example #1 ~ Compare these fractions. 0.8 0.428 < < = The greater than symbol can be placed between these fractions.

9
**< 0.857 0.444 Which sign belongs between the two fractions? ÷ ÷ 6 7**

= 4 ÷ 9 = < 0.857 0.444

10
**0.857 0.444 < < = greater than**

Which sign belongs between the two fractions? 0.857 0.444 < < = greater than

11
**Change Each Fraction to a Decimal**

0.75 0.83 Five-sixths is the greater fraction.
