1^{st} number: 1/2, 2^{nd} number: 1 3/6

12 is smaller than 96

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

LCM of 2 and 6 is**6** - For the 1st fraction, since 2 × 3 = 6,

12 = 1 × 32 × 3 = 36 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 6 × 1 = 6,

96 = 9 × 16 × 1 = 96 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 36 < 96 or 12 < 96
