• 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.
• 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.
• What would you do if you had improper fractions? Use a different technique?
• no,the tequenice is the same
• it wont let me watch the video
• It may be from a connection or firewall error. Try refreshing the page.

• You can just see the denominator and the smaller number is going to be bigger, so yeah. It's easy!
Image 1/2 and 6/8. 1/2 is bigger so yeah bc the smaller denominator is always bigger than the bigger one!
• No. 6/8 = 3/4 and 3/4 > 1/2
