## McGraw-Hill Math Grade 3 Answer Key Chapter 8 Lesson 10 Comparing Fractions with the Same Numerator

Compare

Compare the fractions. Write >, <, or = in the .

Question 1.

$$\frac{1}{3}$$ $$\frac{1}{8}$$
The name of the shape is circle.
The first shape is divided into three equal parts. The name of the fraction is thirds.
The second shape is divided into eight equal parts. The name of the fraction is eighths.
$$\frac{1}{3}$$ $$\frac{1}{8}$$

Question 2.

$$\frac{1}{2}$$ $$\frac{1}{2}$$
The name of the shape is a triangle.
The first shape is divided into two equal parts. The name of the fraction is halves.
The second shape is divided into two equal parts. The name of the fraction is halves.
$$\frac{1}{2}$$ =Â $$\frac{1}{2}$$

Question 3.

$$\frac{2}{6}$$ $$\frac{2}{4}$$
The name of the shape is a square.
The first shape is divided into six equal parts. The name of the fraction is sixths.
Shaded fraction = $$\frac{2}{6}$$
The second shape is divided into four equal parts. The name of the fraction is fourths.
Shaded fraction = $$\frac{2}{4}$$
$$\frac{2}{6}$$ <Â $$\frac{2}{4}$$

Question 4.
Regina has read $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of a book. Christian has read $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of the same book. Who has read more pages? Explain.
Given,
Regina has read $$\frac{1}{4}$$ of a book.
Christian has read $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of the same book.
The denominator with the greatest number will be the smallest fraction.
$$\frac{1}{4}$$ < $$\frac{1}{3}$$
Thus Christian read more pages than Regina.

Question 5.
A fraction is greater than $$\frac{1}{4}$$ but less than $$\frac{1}{2}$$. Its numerator is 1. What is the fraction?
A fraction is greater than $$\frac{1}{4}$$ but less than $$\frac{1}{2}$$. Its numerator is 1.
The fraction between $$\frac{1}{4}$$ and $$\frac{1}{2}$$ is $$\frac{1}{3}$$
