The numerators and denominators are the basic portions of fractions. If you want to have some mathematical jobs to do with fractions, you need to know the numerators and denominators. Stay with us in this article to have a firm knowledge about all of these.

Follow the detailed instructions provided below. You can also arrange interactive games using these activities to make learning more effective.

**Introduction to Numerator of a Fraction**

A fraction consists of two numbers printed one above the other and separated by a fraction bar, which is a horizontal line. **The numerator is the number above the fraction bar**, while the denominator is the number below the fraction bar.

For instance, if you take a fraction a/b, a is the numerator and b is the denominator. If we take the numbers as nominators and denominators like- ⅘ then 5 is the denominator and 4 is the nominator here.

Here, we are going to describe 5 easy ways to compare fractions with the same numerator. This is a very **basic mathematical operation** regarding fractions.

## Comparing Fractions with Like Numerators in Ascending Order

Ascending order is a method of ordering numbers from smaller to bigger. Ascending means increasing. If you have a set of numbers 2, 3, 5, 9, 6, and 1, the ascending order for the numbers will be 1<2<3<5<6<9. If you have some fractions with the same numerator and need to make an ascending order, it is quite an easy task. The main idea of this activity: the larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.

Let’s practice the above method in the following worksheet.

## Comparing Fractions with the Same Numerators in Descending Order

Descending order is a method of ordering numbers from bigger to smaller. Ascending means decreasing. If you have a set of numbers 4, 3, 5, 6, 9, and 7, the descending order for the numbers will be 9>7>6>5>4>3. If you have some fractions with the same numerator and need to make a descending order, it is quite an easy task. The main idea of this activity: the smaller the denominator, the larger the fraction.

Try out the aforementioned technique using the worksheet that follows.

## Using Different Types of Visual Elements to Compare Fractions with the Same Numerator

In this portion, I will use different types of visual elements to compare fractions. We can use squares, rectangles, circles, and triangles to represent fractions. Let’s see an example of visual elements to compare fractions.

Try out the technique mentioned above using the worksheet that follows.

## Comparing Fractions with the Same Numerator by Using Decimal Method

By using decimal procedures, you may compare fractions. Here, we contrast fractions’ decimal values. In this case, the fraction is transformed into decimals by dividing the numerator by the denominator. The decimal values are then contrasted.

Let’s follow the following worksheet to practice more.

## Using Cross Multiplication to Compare Fractions with the Same Numerator

We multiply the numerator of one fraction by the denominator of the second fraction to compare fractions using cross multiplication. Let’s use an illustration to better grasp this. Compared to 1/4, 1/6. See the illustration below for a clearer explanation of this.

Try out the aforementioned technique using the worksheet that follows.

## Comparing Fractions with the Same Numerator and Denominator

We have discussed how to compare fractions with the same numerator in the former sections of this article. Now I will show how to compare fractions with the same denominators. Let’s take two fractions ¼ and ¾ as examples. Here, you should bear in mind that for the same denominator, the greater the numerator, the greater the fractions. As in the given fraction, 3>1. Then ¾>¼.

Follow the procedure and practice in the worksheet attached with the article.
