Bookmark(0)

If you are required to find the greater of two fractions and you are not sure about the right fraction, then Cross multiply to find the greater fraction technique discussed here will simplify the confusion.

  1. Simply multiply the numerator of each fraction with the denominator of the other fraction.
  2. Write the answers to the corresponding numerator.
  3. The fraction which will show a greater value will be bigger.

For Example

If you are given two fractions

5/7 and 2/3

5 multiply by 3 will give 15 and 2 multiply by 7 will give 14

15 5/7  2/3 14

So,

5/7 is the greater equation.
