• Are there any other way to solve this equations?
• you can find a common denominator. a common denominator for 7/10 and 8/9 is 90. because 10 x 9 = 90 and 9 x 10 = 90. and then just multiply the numerator by the same amount. and then compare the numerators.
• Are there diffrent ways to solve this?
• I know you just watch another vid about it
• What would you do if you had improper fractions? Use a different technique?
• no,the tequenice is the same
• shoudent 7/10 be bigger then 8/9?
• In the fraction 7/10, the pieces are smaller than they are in 8/9 because the whole is broken up into more pieces. Because you have more of the bigger pieces (8 pieces compared to 7), that is the bigger fraction.
