# Comparison of fractions - Examples, Exercises and Solutions

## Comparing Fractions

### How do you compare fractions?

#### The first step -

Find a common denominator – by expanding and reducing or by multiplying the denominators. (Remember to multiply both the numerator and the denominator)

#### The second step -

Let's check which fraction is larger based on the numerators alone. The fraction with the larger numerator will be larger.

Note- First of all, we will convert whole numbers and mixed numbers to improper fractions, and only then will we find a common denominator.
