How to compare fractions with the same numerator visually?
Comparing fractions with the same numerator is relatively straightforward because the key factor determining their size is the denominator. The bigger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.

Imagine the fractions as parts of a whole (e.g., slices of a pizza or pies).
The fraction with the smaller denominator represents larger pieces of the whole, making it the bigger fraction.
Conversely, the fraction with the larger denominator represents smaller pieces, making it the smaller fraction.
Example: Compare 3/4 and 3/8.
3/4 represents 3 out of 4 equal slices of a pizza.
3/8 represents 3 out of 8 smaller slices of the same pizza.
Since 3 slices of larger pieces are bigger than 3 slices of smaller pieces, 3/4 is bigger than 3/8.

When comparing fractions with the same numerator, focus on the denominators. The fraction with the smaller denominator represents larger parts of the whole, making it greater. The fraction with the larger denominator represents smaller parts, making it less.
