Question 7(a) :

Find answer to the following. Write and indicate how you solved it:

Is 59 equal to 45 ?


Solution

The given fractions 59,45 are unlike fractions because they have different denominators. 

When we compare two unlike fractions, we first get their equivalent fractions with a denominator which is a common multiple of the denominators of both the fractions.

The LCM of 9 and 5 is 45.

The equivalent fractions with the same denominator are :

59=5×59×5=2545 and 45=4×95×9=3645

Since, 2545 < 3645

5945
