# Mathematics Class 6 NCERT Solutions: Chapter 7 Fractions Exercise 7.4 – Part 1

Q.1 Write shaded portion as fraction. Arrange them in ascending and descending order using correct sign between the fractions:

(a)

Ascending order:

Descending order:

(b)

Ascending order:

Descending order:

(c) Show and on the number line. Put appropriate signs between the fractions given:

Numerator will dictate the sign

Q.2 Compare the fractions and put an appropriate sign:

(a)

Here the fraction is like fraction, so numerator will dictate the sign , since 3 is less than 5.

(b)

Here, the fraction is unlike fraction, we first get their equivalent fractions with a denominator which is the LCM of the denominators of both the fractions. LCM of 7 and 4 is 28.

So,

(c)

Here the fraction is like fraction, so numerator will dictate the sign , since 4 is less than 5

(d)

Here the fraction is unlike fraction, we first get their equivalent fractions with a denominator which is the L.C.M of the denominators of both the fractions. LCM of 5 and 7 is 35.

So,
