The Greatest Value
My concern is to get the greatest value in a short way of the following question.
Which of the following fractions has the greatest value?
Hi there, a short way to approach this is to simplify the values first. Notice that the denominator has 2^x * 5^y. That should give you the clue that something can be done about it. To simplify, multiply all terms by 2^2 * 5^2.
e. 122/ (4*5)
It will now be easier to tell which is the biggest, and that is d.
Exactly, I would approach this question like that way, just think they are equal and parallelly simplify the questions cancealing all the common factors in the denominator, then u will be able to compare whatever is left in simplified form.
