LCM of 3 and 7 is**21**

Next, find the equivalent fraction of both fractional numbers with denominator 21 - For the 1st fraction, since 3 × 7 = 21,

103 = 10 × 73 × 7 = 7021 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 7 × 3 = 21,

107 = 10 × 37 × 3 = 3021 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 7021 > 3021 or 103 > 107
