Next, find the equivalent fraction of both fractional numbers with denominator 10 - For the 1st fraction, since 2 × 5 = 10,

92 = 9 × 52 × 5 = 4510 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 5 × 2 = 10,

15 = 1 × 25 × 2 = 210 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 4510 > 210 or 92 > 15
