Next, find the equivalent fraction of both fractional numbers with denominator 30 - For the 1st fraction, since 6 × 5 = 30,

76 = 7 × 56 × 5 = 3530 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 10 × 3 = 30,

210 = 2 × 310 × 3 = 630 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 3530 > 630 or 76 > 210
