11/12 because 5/6=10/12 11/12>10/12

To work this out, we want to find the Lowest Common Multiple of 6 and 12 This is the smallest number that fits in both 6 x 2 = 12 12 x 1 = 12 11/12 is already over 12 so we don't need to do anything 5/6 is not - to convert it, we multiply the top and the bottom by 2 5 x 2 = 10 10/12 or 11/12 10 is smaller than 11 Therefore 5/6 is smaller than 11/12 5/6 < 11/12 11/12 is greater
