Comparing Like Fractions.

Ordering Like Fractions.

Like fractions are fractions with the same denominator.

They are the parts of wholes with the same number of divisions.

**How do you compare like fractions?**

Like fractions have the same denominator.

Each whole has the same number of parts.

**To compare like fractions, we only compare the numerators.**

For Example,

2/6 & 1/6

2/6 shows 2 parts out of 6 total parts.

1/6 shows **1 part** out of 6 total parts.

- We can easily understand that 2 parts > 1 part.
- 2/6 is greater than 1/6.

**Remember: **

- While comparing like fractions, we only compare
**numerators**. - Larger the numerator, greater the fraction is.
