# Section C: Practice Problems Fraction Comparison

## Section Summary

## Details

In this section, we compared fractions using what we know about the size of fractions, benchmarks such as

is equivalent to , so is less than . is equivalent to , so is more than .

This means that

We can also compare by writing equivalent fractions with the same denominator. For example, to compare
