Find descending order 1/2,2/3,1/4

Solution:
Your problem `->` descending order 1/2,2/3,1/4


Step-1 : Find the LCD of denominators
Here, LCD of 2, 3, 4 = 12

Step-2 : Convert each fraction into its equivalent with the LCD in the denominator
For `1/2`, multiply numerator and denominator by 6 to have LCD = 12 in the denominator.

`1/2 = 1/2 xx 6/6 = 6/12`

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 `1/4`, multiply numerator and denominator by 3 to have LCD = 12 in the denominator.

`1/4 = 1/4 xx 3/3 = 3/12`


Step-3 : Arrange fractions: If denominators are the same, then we can arrange the numerators.
Here 8 > 6 > 3
`:. 8/12 > 6/12 > 3/12 `

So, we conclude `2/3> 1/2> 1/4`
