7 / 8 is less than 24 / 25 . Convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with a common denominator and compare the numerators, or convert them to decimal numbers and compare directly. I prefer fractions: lcm of 8 and 25 is 200. 7 / 8 = 175 / 200 24 / 25 = 192 / 200 175 < 192 ⇒ 7 / 8 < 24 / 25 . The use of decimals: 7/8 = 0.875 24/25 = 0.96 0.875 < 0.96 ⇒ 7 / 8 < 24 / 25
