Which of the following fractions is the largest?

\(\frac{10}{24}\)

Explanation

To arrive at the answer find a common denominator that all the denominators divide evenly into. In this case, the common denominator is 48. Next, convert all fractions to 48ths. For example, in the case of \(\frac{4}{12}\) multiply 4 by 0/0 to reach 0/48. Perform the same type of calculation for all the other fractions, figuring out what number x the denominator gets 48, and then compare numerators. The largest numerator is the largest fraction. In this case it's \(\frac{10}{24}\).
