Q.4 Which is greater:

(i) (2/7) of (3/4) or (3/5) of (5/8)

(ii) (1/2) of (6/7) or (2/3) of (3/7)

(i) (2/7) of (3/4) or (3/5) of (5/8)

(ii) (1/2) of (6/7) or (2/3) of (3/7)

(i) 2/7×3/4=6/28= \(\frac{6÷2}{28÷2} \)=3/14

3/5×5/8=15/40=\(\frac{15÷5}{40÷5} \)=3/8

Numerator are same and 14 >8

Hence 3/8>3/14

(ii) 1/2×6/7=6/14=\(\frac{6÷2}{14÷2} \)=3/7

2/3×3/7=6/21=\(\frac{6÷3}{21÷3} \)=2/7

Hence 3/7>2/7
