## How do you sort fractions in ascending order?

Ordering fractions in ascending order For the fractions having the same denominator, the fraction with the smallest numerator is the smallest. Example: Arrange 3⁄7 , 2⁄7 , 5⁄7 , 1⁄7 in ascending order. When the fractions have the same numerator, the fraction with the highest denominator is the smallest.

**How do we arrange fraction in increasing and decreasing order?**

We will convert the fractions to like fractions to arrange them in order. Explanation: Arranging in decreasing order means arranging the fractions from ‘greatest to smallest’ in value. Similarly, arranging in increasing order means arranging the fractions from ‘smallest to greatest’ in value.

### How do you arrange fractions in descending order with the same numerator?

The order of fractions will be reverse of the order of the denominators. Hence, the fractions in increasing order would be d/c < d/b < d/a. To arrange the fractions d/a, d/b, d/c in decreasing order, we find the fractions have same numerator. We arrange the denominators in decreasing order as c > b > a.

**How do you arrange fractions in descending order with the same denominator?**

Ordering Fractions With The Same Denominator

- To arrange the fractions a/d, b/d, c/d in increasing order, we find that the fractions have same denominator. We arrange the numerator in increasing order as a < b < c.
- To arrange the fractions a/d, b/d, c/d in decreasing order, we find the fractions have same denominator.

#### What is comparing and ordering fractions?

When comparing and ordering fractions, you must have a common denominator. After you find a common denominator, you can simply compare the numerators of the fractions. If the fraction also includes a whole number, you would compare the whole number before finding the common denominator.

**What is the rule for ordering fractions with the same numerator?**

When 2 fractions have the same numerator, just compare denominators. The bigger the denominator, the smaller the fraction. Remember: The bigger the denominator, the more parts the whole is split into, so each piece is smaller. When 2 fractions have the same denominator, just compare numerators.

## How do you arrange mixed fractions?

How to arrange mixed numbers (fractions) and put them in order starting with the smallest

- Same denominators: If the denominators of two fractions are the same, just compare the numerators.
- Same numerators: If the numerators of two fractions are the same, just compare the denominators.
