Step 2: Find a common denominator:

To compare and order fractions, they must have the same denominator. Determine the least common denominator (LCD) by finding the smallest multiple that each of the denominators can evenly divide into.

Step 3: Convert the fractions:

Change each fraction to an equivalent fraction with the LCD as the denominator. To do this, divide the LCD by the original denominator and multiply the result by the numerator of the original fraction.

Step 4: Compare the numerators:

Now that all the fractions have the same denominator, compare the numerators of the converted fractions.
