How to Put Fractions in Order?

Answer

Sometimes it's simplest to think of a pizza when determining how to put fractions in order. If you have one whole pizza, and you cut it into three pieces (or thirds), you can easily visualize that 2/3 of that pizza is bigger than 1/3 of it. What about 1/2 and 7/8 though? Think about the pizza again - this time put a second pizza next to it. Using the first pizza, cut it into 2 equal pieces and move one piece to a plate. You now have 1/2 of the pizza on the plate. Now cut the second pizza into 8 equal pieces and move 7 of those pieces to a plate. You now have 7/8 of that pizza on the plate. Compare the two plates - which plate has more pizza on it? Of course the answer is the one with 7/8!There are more complicated ways of figuring this out, but it's easiest to start out with this method and watch how everything else falls into place.
