1/2″ equals 2/4″, so 4 is our common denominator. Therefore 2/4″ + 1/4″ = 3/4″. Subtraction works the same way: 7/8″ – 3/16″= 14/16″ – 3/16″ = 11/16″. Fractions more than an inch are written: 1 3/16″ or 5 3/8″.

## What is bigger 5/16 or 3/8 or smaller?

Comparing fractions: Fractions can be compared when they have a common denominator. For instance, 5/16 inches and 3/8 inches are two measurements on a ruler. In order to compare the two fractions, they must have a common denominator, 16. 3/8 is larger than 5/16.

## Which is the largest fraction?

For larger fraction, the numerator should be larger (denominators are same) and/or denominator should be smaller (numerators are same). So comparing 1/24, 1/45 and 1/72, we ignore 1/45 and 1/72. Since 1/4.29 has the smallest denominator, the largest fraction will be 7/30.

## How long is 7/8 of an inch on a ruler?

7⁄8” 0.875 22.225

## How can you tell which fraction is bigger or smaller?

Step 2: Check the numerators. If the denominators are the same, then the fraction with the greater numerator is the greater fraction. The fraction with the lesser numerator is the lesser fraction. And, as noted above, if the numerators are equal, the fractions are equivalent.

## What is bigger 1/2 inch or 7 8 inch?

The smaller denominator will give a larger fraction. Another method for comparing is to think of the fractions. In this example it is obvious that 1/3 is smaller than 7/8. For one thing, 1/3 is smaller than 1/2 and 7/8 is larger than 1/2.

## What is 5/8 of an inch on a ruler?

## How can you tell which fraction is bigger?

Step 1: Compare denominators. If they are different, rewrite one or both fractions with a common denominator. Step 2: Check the numerators. If the denominators are the same, then the fraction with the greater numerator is the greater fraction.
