In this worksheet, students decide which of two fractions is larger by using common denominators to compare their sizes. Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Number

Curriculum subtopic:   Understand Order for All Numbers

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we must decide which of two fractions is larger and then use the < or > symbol.

Example

Without a calculator, we want to decide which is larger

 6 10

 or

 5 9

We can use common denominators and change both fractions into 90ths.

 6 10
=
 6×9 10×9
=
 54 90

 5 9
=
 5×10 9×10
=
 50 90

 54 90
>
 50 90
ie.
 6 10
>
 5 9
