[latex] \frac{3}{8} ... \frac{5}{16} [/latex] First, find the least common denominator between the two. Since 8 is a factor of 16, the LCD is 16. [latex] \frac{3*2}{8*2} [/latex] [latex] \frac{3}{8}= \frac{6}{16} [/latex] Now, you can compare the numerators. [latex]6>5[/latex] Since 6 is greater than 5, you know that [latex] \frac{6}{16} > \frac{5}{16} [/latex]. Therefore, we now know that [latex] \frac{3}{8} [/latex] is larger.
