i chose slide 2, 1/2 and 7/12.
7 /12 is bigger because 1/2 is 0.5 and 7/12 is already bigger because 6/12 is equivelent to 1/2 and sence 7/12 is bigger then 6/12 its already bigger then 1/2.

I chose 5/6 and 6/5...
Improper fraction s are always bigger than proper...

i chose 4/7 and 6/7. 6/7 is bigger because both of the fractions have the same amount of equal pieces, and you'd rather have 6 pieces, than 4 pieces, because 6 is more .

I chose 4/7 & 6/7.
6/7 is bigger because, 4/7 & 6/7 have the same denominator and 6/7 has a bigger numerator than 4/7, and 6/7 has more pieces to the whole than 4/7.

I choose 4/5 and 5/6 because it is easier to determine which one is bigger just by looking at the 4/5 because 4/5 is past 1 whole while 5/6 is just close to it
