Arrange the following in descending order: 2/9, 2/3, 8/21

 2/9, 2/3, 8/21

Solution

We have to arrange the given fractions in descending order

Let us first convert the fractions into fractions by taking LCM

LCM of 9, 3, 21 = 63

Now, Convert the given fractions into an equivalent fraction having 63 as the denominator.

[(2/9) × (7/7)] = (14/63)
[(2/3) × (21/21)] = (42/63)
[(8/21) × (3/3)] = (24/63)
Hence on arranging the like fractions as per the given series we get

14/63, 42/63, 24/63

As per the descending order

(42/63) > (24/63) > (14/63)

Thus,

(2/3) > (8/21) > (2/9)

Answer

Hence, the given fractions in descending order are (2/3), (8/21), (2/9)
