On Comparing the Numerators, we find

7 > 4

Hence,$\cfrac { 7 }{ 3 }$ >$\cfrac { 4 }{ 3 }$

Correct Answer – a) $\cfrac { 7 }{ 3 }$ >$\cfrac { 4 }{ 3 }$

Q.16) Explanation – Fractions Worksheets Grade 4

$\cfrac { 2 }{ 3 }$ and$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$ are Unlike Fractions as Denominator of both the Fractions is different i.e, 3 and 2

To compare Unlike Fractions we have two methods:

First Method : By Converting Given Fractions into Like Fractions

Given Fractions : $\cfrac { 2 }{ 3 }$ and$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$

Taking LCM of the Denominator of both the Fractions.

i.e, LCM of 3 and 2 is 6

To change the Unlike Fractions into Like Fractions

We have to multiply the Numerator and Denominator of the Given Fraction by a number such that the Denominator of the given Fraction becomes equal to its LCM i.e, 6

We have to multiply Numerator and Denominator of $\cfrac { 2 }{ 3 }$ i.e, 2 and 3 by$\cfrac { 6 }{ 3 }$ or 2

$\cfrac { 2\times 2 }{3\times 2}$ = $\cfrac{4}{6}$

We have to multiply Numerator and Denominator of $\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$ i.e, 1 and 2 by$\cfrac { 6 }{ 2 }$ or 3

$\cfrac { 1\times 3 }{2\times 3}$ = $\cfrac{3}{6}$

Now the Given Fractions are Like Fraction as their Denominator become same.

On Comparing their Numerators, we find 4 > 3

Therefore,$\cfrac { 4 }{ 6 }$ >$\cfrac { 3 }{ 6 }$ Hence,$\cfrac { 2 }{ 3 }$ >$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$

Second Method : By Cross Multiplication Method

On Cross multiplying$\cfrac { 2 }{ 3 }$ and$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$

In Cross Multiplication Method we multiply the Numerator of First Fraction namely 2 by the Denominator of Second Fraction namely 2

i.e, 2 x 2 = 4

Then, we multiply the Numerator of Second Fraction namely 1 by the Denominator of First Fraction namely 3

i.e, 1 x 3 = 3

Since, 4 > 3

Therefore, $\cfrac { 2 }{ 3 }$ >$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$

Correct Answer – a) $\cfrac { 2 }{ 3 }$ >$\cfrac { 1 }{ 2 }$

Q.17) Explanation – Fractions Worksheets Grade 4

Sum of Like Fraction = $\cfrac { Sum\quad of\quad their\quad Numerators }{ Common\quad Denominator }$

= $\cfrac{5+1}{12}$= $\cfrac{6}{12}$

Hence, the sum of $\cfrac{5}{12}$and $\cfrac{1}{12}$is $\cfrac{6}{12}$

Simplifying further,

HCF of 6 and 12 is 6

Dividing both Numerator and Denominator by their HCF i.e,

$\cfrac{6 \div 6 }{12 \div 6 }$ = $\cfrac{1}{2}$

Hence, the sum of $\cfrac{5}{12}$ and $\cfrac{1}{12}$= $\cfrac{1}{2}$

Correct Answer – a) $\cfrac{1}{2}$

Q.18) Explanation – Fractions Worksheets Grade 4

In order to add Unlike Fraction

Firstly, we have to change the Unlike Fraction, into equivalent Like Fractions, and then add the two equivalent Like Fractions

Take LCM of 12 and 6 is 12

Converting the Unlike Fraction into Equivalent Like Fraction

We have to multiply , both the numerator and denominator of $\cfrac{5}{12}$ by 1

$\cfrac { 5\times 1 }{12\times 1}$ = $\cfrac{5}{12}$

We have to multiply , both the numerator and denominator of $\cfrac{2}{6}$by 2

$\cfrac { 2\times 2 }{6\times 2}$ = $\cfrac{4}{12}$

Now $\cfrac{5}{12}$+ $\cfrac{4}{12}$= $\cfrac{9}{12}$

Simplifying further,

HCF of 9 and 12 is 3

Dividing both Numerator and Denominator by their HCF

i.e, $\cfrac{9 \div 3 }{12 \div 3 }$ = $\cfrac{3}{4}$

Hence, the sum of $\cfrac{5}{12}$ and $\cfrac{2}{6}$= $\cfrac{3}{4}$

Correct Answer – b) $\cfrac{3}{4}$

Q.19) Explanation – Fractions Worksheets Grade 4

Difference of Like Fraction = $\cfrac { Difference\quad of\quad their\quad Numerators }{ Common\quad Denominator }$

= $\cfrac{10 - 7}{6}$= $\cfrac{3}{6}$

Simplifying further,

HCF of 3 and 6 is 3

Dividing both Numerator and Denominator by their HCF i.e, $\cfrac{3 \div 3 }{6 \div 3 }$ = $\cfrac{1}{2}$

Hence, the difference of $\cfrac{10}{6}$ and $\cfrac{7}{6}$= $\cfrac{1}{2}$

Correct Answer – c) $\cfrac{1}{2}$

Q.20) Explanation – Fractions Worksheets Grade 4

To find the difference of Unlike Fraction
