1. Write each fraction. Arrange them in ascending and descending order using correct sign <, =, > between the fractions: Solution:  2. Mark 2/6, 4/6, 8/6 and 6/6 on the number line and put appropriate signs between fractions given below:

(i) 5/6 …….. 2/6

(ii) 3/6 ……. 0/6

(iii) 1/6 …… 6/6

(iv) 8/6 …… 5/6

Solution: (i) We know that

5/6 > 2/6 as 5 > 2 and the denominator is same.

(ii) We know that

3/6 > 0/6 as 3 > 0 and the denominator is same.

(iii) We know that

1/6 < 6/6 as 6 > 1 and the denominator is same.

(iv) We know that

8/6 > 5/6 as 8 > 5 and the denominator is same.

3. Compare the following fractions and put an appropriate sign:

(i) 3/6 …… 5/6

(ii) 4/5 …… 0/5

(iii) 3/20 …… 4/20

(iv) 1/7 ……. 1/4

Solution:

(i) We know that

3/6 < 5/6 as 3 < 5 and the denominator is same.

(ii) We know that

4/5 > 0/5 as 4 > 0 and the denominator is same.

(iii) We know that

3/20 < 4/20 as 3 < 4 and the denominator is same.

(iv) We know that

1/7 < 1/4 as 7 > 4 and the fraction having smaller denominator is larger.

4. Compare the following fractions using the symbol > or <:

(i) 6/7 and 6/11

(ii) 3/7 and 5/7

(iii) 2/3 and 8/12

(iv) 1/5 and 4/15

(v) 8/3 and 8/13

(vi) 4/9 and 15/8

Solution:

(i) We know that

6/7 > 6/11 as the fraction having smaller denominator is larger.

(ii) We know that

3/7 < 5/7 as 3 < 5 and the denominator is same.

(iii) We know that

8/12 = (2 × 2 × 2)/ (2 × 2 × 3) = 2/3

Hence, 2/3 = 8/12

(iv) We know that

1/5 = (1/ 5) × (3/3) = 3/15 which is lesser than 4/15

Hence, 1/5 < 4/15

(v) We know that

8/3 > 8/13 as the fraction having smaller value of denominator is larger.

(vi) We know that

4/9 = (4/9) × (8/8) = 32/72

15/8 = (15/8) × (9/9) = 135/72

So we get 32/72 < 135/72

Hence, 4/9 < 15/8.

By dividing numerator and denominator by HCF of 16 and 96

16/96 ÷ 16/16 = 1/6

(ix) 12/75

We know that HCF of 12 and 75 = 3

By dividing numerator and denominator by HCF of 12 and 75

12/75 ÷ 3/3 = 4/25

(x) 12/72

We know that HCF of 12 and 72 = 12

By dividing numerator and denominator by HCF of 12 and 72

12/72 ÷ 12/12 = 1/6

(xi) 3/18

We know that HCF of 3 and 18 = 3

By dividing numerator and denominator by HCF of 3 and 18

3/18 ÷ 3/3 = 1/6

(xii) 4/25

We know that HCF of 4 and 25 = 1

By dividing numerator and denominator by HCF of 4 and 25

4/25 ÷ 1/1 = 4/25

6. Isha read 25 pages of a book containing 100 pages. Nagma read ½ of the same book. Who read less?

Solution:

No. of pages in the book = 100

We know that

Fraction of book Isha read = (25/100) ÷ (25/25) = 1/4 by dividing both numerator and denominator by HCF of 25 and 100

So the fraction of book Nagma read = 1/2

By comparing 1/4 and 1/2 we get the LCM of 4 and 2 = 4

Now convert the fraction into equivalent fraction having denominator as 4

1/4 × 1/1 and 1/2 × 2/2

1/4 < ½
