Ex 7.4 ,2 Compare the fractions and put an appropriate sign. (a) 3/6 "โ" 5/6 3/6 "โ" 5/6 Since denominator is same, fraction with larger numerator is large. ๐/๐ < ๐/๐ Ex 7.4 ,2 Compare the fractions and put an appropriate sign. (b) 1/7 "โ" 1/4 1/7 "โ" 1/4 Here the denominators are different. So, we cross multiply 1 ร 4 "โ" 1 ร 7 4 "โ" 7 4 < 7 โด 1/7 < 1/4 1/7 "โ" 1/4 Here the denominators are different. So, we cross multiply 1 ร 4 "โ" 1 ร 7 4 "โ" 7 4 < 7 โด 1/7 < 1/4 4/5 "โ" 5/5 Since, the denominator is same, fraction with larger numerator is larger. ๐/๐ < ๐/๐ Ex 7.4 ,2 Compare the fractions and put an appropriate sign. (d) 3/5 "โ" 3/7 3/5 "โ" 3/7 Here, the denominators are different So, we cross multiply. 3/5 "โ" 3/7 3 ร 7 โ 3 ร 5 21 โ 15 21 > 15 โด ๐/๐ > ๐/๐
