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

52 is greater than 16

- 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,

52 = 5 × 32 × 3 = 156 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 6 × 1 = 6,

16 = 1 × 16 × 1 = 16 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 156 > 16 or 52 > 16
