    Answer:

    3/15 < 1/3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We have two fractions, 3/15 and 1/3. The question is asking us to compare them using the less than sign <, greater than sign >, or equal sign =.

    To solve this question, what we must do is try to get both fractions the same denominators, which will be done through multiplying 3 by a certain number to get to 15, then doing the same for the numerator.

    So what multiplied by 3 gets us 15?

    5.

    Multiply both the numerator and denominator by 5.

    \frac{1*5}{3*5}

    \frac{5}{15}

    Now that they both have the same denominator, we can compare and see which is bigger.

    5/15 (1/3) and 3/15.

    By this we can see that 3/15 is less than 5/15.

    Therefore 3/15 < 1/3
