Steps for comparing fractions

  1. Find the least common denominator or LCM of the two denominators:
    LCM of 4 and 10 is 20
  2. For the 1st fraction, since 4 × 5 = 20,
    2/4 = 2 × 5/4 × 5 = 10/20
  3. Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 10 × 2 = 20,
    9/10 = 9 × 2/10 × 2 = 18/20
  4. Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
