#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will learn how to compare fractions by changing them to decimals.

Compare the fractions by first using your calculator to change them into decimal fractions.

Example:

Compare
 1 11
and
 11 23

 1 11
=
1 ÷ 11 = 0.0909090909091

 11 23
=
11 ÷ 23 = 0.478260869565

 1 11
is less than
 11 23

That looks pretty easy, doesn't it? Let's give it a go with some questions.
