How to compare unit fractions?
Comparing unit fractions involves determining which of two or more unit fractions is greater or smaller. A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator (top number) is 1.

  1. We can use visual aids such as fraction strips, fraction bars, circles, or number lines to represent the unit fractions.
    For example, we will be able to see that 1/3 is greater than 1/4.
    Imagine a pizza cut into 3 slices and another same size pizza cut into 4 slices. We can visualize that the slice of pizza that was cut into 3 parts would be bigger than the slice of pizza that was cut into 4 parts.
    The fraction with the larger denominator has smaller pieces, so it represents a smaller fraction of the whole. In this case, 1/4 is smaller than 1/3.

  2. We can also compare the denominators of the unit fractions. A smaller denominator means larger pieces, indicating a bigger fraction.
    For example, 1/4 is greater than 1/6.
