Arrange the numbers 1/4, 13/16, 5/8 in the descending order.

Solution

Given numbers are

1/4, 13/16, 5/8

On taking LCM of the given numbers we obtain

The LCM of the denominators 4, 16 and 8 is 16

∴ 1/4 = [(1×4)/ (4×4)] = (4/16)

(13/16) = [(13×1)/ (16×1)] = (13/16)

(5/8) = [(5×2)/ (8×2)] = (10/16)

(4/16),(13/16),(10/16)

We observe that

 13 < 10 < 4

⇒ (13/16) > (10/16) > (4/16)

Hence, (13/16) > (5/8) > (¼)

Answer

Descending order 13/16, 5/8, 1/4
