Solution:
Your problem `->` compare fraction 3/4,5/6


Step-1 : Find the LCD of denominators
Here, LCD of 4 and 6 = 12

Step-2 : Convert each fraction into its equivalent with the LCD in the denominator
For `3/4`, multiply numerator and denominator by 3 to have LCD = 12 in the denominator.

`3/4 = 3/4 xx 3/3 = 9/12`

For `5/6`, multiply numerator and denominator by 2 to have LCD = 12 in the denominator.

`5/6 = 5/6 xx 2/2 = 10/12`


Step-3 : Compare fractions: If denominators are the same, then we can compare the numerators.
Here 9 < 10,
`:. 9/12 < 10/12`

So, we conclude `3/4 < 5/6`
