 Problem: ascending order 1/2,2/3,1/4 [ Calculator, Method and examples ]Solution:Your problem -> ascending order 1/2,2/3,1/4Step-1 : Find the LCD of denominatorsHere, LCD of 2, 3, 4 = 12Step-2 : Convert each fraction into its equivalent with the LCD in the denominatorFor 1/2, multiply numerator and denominator by 6 to have LCD = 12 in the denominator.1/2 = 1/2 xx 6/6 = 6/12For 2/3, multiply numerator and denominator by 4 to have LCD = 12 in the denominator.2/3 = 2/3 xx 4/4 = 8/12For 1/4, multiply numerator and denominator by 3 to have LCD = 12 in the denominator.1/4 = 1/4 xx 3/3 = 3/12Step-3 : Arrange fractions: If denominators are the same, then we can arrange the numerators.Here 3 < 6 < 8 :. 3/12 < 6/12 < 8/12 So, we conclude 1/4< 1/2< 2/3
