LCM of 4 and 10 is**20**

Next, find the equivalent fraction of both fractional numbers with denominator 20 - For the 1st fraction, since 4 × 5 = 20,

74 = 7 × 54 × 5 = 3520 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 10 × 2 = 20,

810 = 8 × 210 × 2 = 1620 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 3520 > 1620 or 74 > 810
