Step: 1

[Original expression.]

Step: 2

Since the denominators of both fractions are equal, compare the numerators.

Step: 3

As numerators of both the fractions are equal, 7 6 = 7 6 .

Correct Answer is : =

Step: 1

Suppose the pie is cut into 7 pieces.

Step: 2

Figure 1 represents 1 6

1 6 < 4 6

Step: 2

Figure 2 represents 4 6

4 6 = 4 6

Step: 3

Figure 3 represents 3 6

3 6 < 4 6

Step: 4

Figure 4 represents 5 6

5 6 > 4 6

Step: 5

So, Figure 4 represents the fraction greater than 4 6 .

Correct Answer is : Figure 4

Step: 1

The first model represents the fraction 4 8 and the second model represents 5 8 .

[Because, in the first model, 4 out of 8 parts are shaded and in the second model, 5 out of 8 parts are shaded.]

Step: 2

Look at the shaded areas. The shaded area of the second model is larger than the first model. So, 4 8 < 5 8 .

Correct Answer is : 4 8 < 5 8
