1.

Bob and David have two oranges of the same size. Bob's orange is cut into 6 equal slices. David's orange is cut into 8 equal slices. Bob eats 5 slices and David eats 3 slices. Which orange has larger slices?

a. | We cannot compare | ||

b. | Both have same size slices | ||

c. | David′s orange | ||

d. | Bob′s orange |

Since Bob's orange has less slices (6), it has larger slices.

Correct answer : (4)

2.

Choose an appropriate symbol to compare the fractions.

$\frac{4}{7}$ $\begin{array}{|c|}\hline \\ \hline\end{array}$ $\frac{6}{7}$

a. | = | ||

b. | + | ||

c. | < | ||

d. | > |

The fraction having greater numerator is the greater fraction.

So,

Correct answer : (3)

3.

State which one of the comparisons of the fractions is true.

a. | $\frac{4}{5}$ > $\frac{5}{5}$ | ||

b. | $\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{3}{4}$ | ||

c. | $\frac{2}{7}$ < $\frac{5}{7}$ | ||

d. | $\frac{5}{7}$ < $\frac{4}{7}$ |

The fraction having greater numerator is the greater fraction.

So,

Correct answer : (3)

4.

Choose an appropriate symbol to compare the fractions.

$\frac{7}{11}$ $\begin{array}{|c|}\hline \\ \hline\end{array}$ $\frac{3}{11}$

a. | = | ||

b. | > | ||

c. | ÷ | ||

d. | < |

The fraction having greater numerator is the greater fraction.

So,

Correct answer : (2)

5.

Choose the figure where the shaded portion represents less than $\frac{3}{6}$ .

a. | Figure 1 | ||

b. | Figure 4 | ||

c. | Figure 2 | ||

d. | Figure 3 |

Figure 2 represents

Figure 3 represents

Figure 4 represents

So, Figure 1 represents the fraction smaller than

Correct answer : (1)

6.

Add.

$\frac{3}{5}$ + $\frac{4}{5}$
