1^{st} number: 1/2, 2^{nd} number: 1 2/4

12 is smaller than 64

- Find the least common denominator or LCM of the two denominators:

LCM of 2 and 4 is**4** - For the 1st fraction, since 2 × 2 = 4,

12 = 1 × 22 × 2 = 24 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 4 × 1 = 4,

64 = 6 × 14 × 1 = 64 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 24 < 64 or 12 < 64
