1. first step is to find a common denominator:

2. determine the answer:
so -18/12 18/2 are equal.

Answer: the answer is =


1. Turn the decimal into a fraction
2. find a common denominator
3. determine the answer.
The two fractions are -9/10 and 10/15
since 10/15 is a positive number it is higher than a negative number

Answer: the answer is <

step 1: turn mixed fractions into an improper fraction
-(1x10+3)= 13
step 2:determine answer.
both numbers are (-13/10)
Answer: the correct answer is =


1. turn the mixed fraction into an improper fraction
-(3x5+1)= -16
-16/ 5

2. turn the decimal into a fraction
-3.25x 100= -325/100 or - 65/50 or -13/25

3. find the common denominator

4. determine the answer:
-13/25 -80/25

Answer is: >

-8/12 -11/5

-40/60 -132/60
Answer: >

F) - 2 5/6 - 2 7/8
