How to Arrange Fractions in Ascending & Descending Order.

How to Arrange Fractions in Ascending & Descending Order.

What is Ascending Order?

Ascending order means arranging the numbers in smallest to largest order ,that is in increasing order.
Count each number and write the smallest number first, compare the rest and find the next largest number and complete the series.

What is Descending Order?

A sequence that starts with the largest number of series and ends with the small or smallest number that series is called a descending order.

How to Ordering a Fraction.

Fractions represent the division of a collection into whole or equal parts, which is initially arranged as the smallest and then as the largest is called the ascending order, but the descending order is arranged as the largest and then the smallest.

To do this, the fractions are rewritten so that they have similar categories and can be compared. Any type of fraction can be ordered, including correct fractions, inappropriate fractions, and mixed numbers.

eg: There are total of 5 children.

4 out of 5 are girls. So, the fraction of girls is four-fifths ( 4⁄5 ).

3 out of 5 are boys. So, the fraction of boys is three-fifths ( 3⁄5 ).




For eg :

1)    3/4    1/2    5/6   7/12   these are fractions, how to arrange in ascending and descending order?

But there are different denominators like 2, 4, 6, 12.
The lowest common multiple is 12, so we go to 12 ,convert fractions so that they have a common denominator of 12.

      3*3/4*3 = 9/12

      1*6/2*6 = 6/12

       5*2/6*2 = 10/12

We get these are the fractions as common denominators of 12 .

ie,  9/12     6/12     10/12    7/12

writing them in accenting order.

 6/12 = 1/2

      7/12  = 7/12

      9/12  =  3/4

      10/12 = 5/6

Change these in size order like the numbers that appear in the query

in ascending order : 1/2     7/12      3/4       5/6

in descending order : 5/6   3/4       7/12       1/2
