Convert to fractionAnswer:5/48, 1/2 and 3/4

Step-by-step explanation:You need to make a common denominator for all the numbers first.

1/2 is equal to 24/48

-multiply both sides by 24 because 48 divided by 2 is 24

3/4 equals 36/48

-multiply both sides by 12 because 48 divided by 4 equals 12

so you get:

24/48 (1/2)

36/48 (3/4)

and 5/48

now you order them:

5/48

24/48

36/48

and then you change them back to their original form:

5/48

1/2

3/4
