## How to campare fractions

You could cross multiple.You have to have two fractions to compare.So you take the denominator of the first fraction and multiple it by the numerator of the second fraction and what you get go's over the numerator of the second fraction.So for the next part you take the denominator on the second fraction and multiple it by the first fraction.So the answer for that goes over the first fraction.So now you have to put the >,< or = to.
