Answer:

#7/8#

Explanation:

In order to find which number is greater, you need to find a common denominator which in this case would be #8#.

In order to get #8# as the denominator for #3/4# you multiply #3/4# by #2/2# and get

#3/4 xx 2/2 = 6/8#

which is less than #7/8#

#6/8 < 7/8#

Answer:

A = #7/8#

Explanation:

The way we would calculate this answer is by first finding a common denominator (the number below the vinculum) and then seeing which numerator has the highest value.

= #3/4# and #7/8#
= #(3 * 8) / (4 * 8)# and #(7 * 4) / (8 * 4)#
= #24/32# and #28/32#
= #28/32# is the bigger number

All the best!

Answer:

7/8

Explanation:

There are 2 ways to work this out. You can either

  • multiply 3 & 4 by 2 so that 3/4 becomes 6/8 to compare with 7/8
    (Finding a common denominator will always help simplify things)

  • simply draw it out like a pizza with slices :)
