Problem: compare ratios 2:3,3:4 [ Calculator, Method and examples ]

Solution:
Your problem `->` compare ratios 2:3,3:4


Step-1 : Find the LCD of denominators
Here, LCD of 3 and 4 = 12

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

`2/3 = 2/3 xx 4/4 = 8/12`

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`


Step-3 : Compare fractions: If denominators are the same, then we can compare the numerators.
Here 8 < 9,
`:. 8/12 < 9/12`

So, we conclude `2/3 < 3/4`
