Question

replace each o with a greater sign, least sign, or = to make it true:
1. -5/8 o 3/8 2. 4/5 o 0.71 3. 5/6 o 0.875
4. 1.2 o 1 2/9 5. 8/15 o 053 6. -7/11 o -2/3

1. thuthao
The complete inequality expressions are
-5/8 < 3/8, 4/5 > 0.71, 5/6 < 0.875, 1.2 < 1 2/9, 8/15 > 0.53 and -7/11 > -2/3

### How to make the statements true?

To do this, we solve the expressions one after the other.
So, we have:
-5/8 o 3/8
Negative numbers are less than positive numbers.
So, we have:
-5/8 < 3/8
4/5 o 0.71
Express 4/5 as decimal
0.8 o 0.71
0.8 is greater than 0.71
So, we have:
0.8 > 0.71
Rewrite as:
4/5 > 0.71
5/6 o 0.875
Express 5/6 as decimal
0.83 o 0.875
0.83 is less than 0.875
So, we have:
0.83 < 0.875
Rewrite as:
5/6 < 0.875
1.2 o 1 2/9
Express 1 2/9 as decimal
1.2 o 1.222
1.2 is less than 1.222
So, we have:
1.2 < 1.222
Rewrite as:
1.2 < 1 2/9
8/15 o 0.53
Express 8/15 as decimal
0.5333 o 0.53
0.5333 is greater than 0.53
So, we have:
0.5333 > 0.53
Rewrite as:
8/15 > 0.53
-7/11 o -2/3
Express as decimals
-0.637 o -0.67
-0.637 is greater than -0.67
So, we have:
-0.637 > -0.67
Rewrite as:
-7/11 > -2/3
