## Find the Order of 1/5,3/4,9 1/12,5/8 from Least to Greatest

Convert Mix Number 9 1/12 to fraction i.e. 109/12

Given Mixed Number is 9 1/12

A Mixed Number is an addition of it's whole number and fractional parts.

The Whole Number is 9 and the fractional part is 1/12.

On adding them, they can be written as:

9/1 + 1/12

The L.C.M of the denominators 1 and 12 is 12.

The numerator of the first fraction 9 is multiplied with the denominator of the second fraction 12.

9 x 12 + 1/12

108 + 1/12

After multiplying, the numerators 108 and 1 should be added.

109/12

The fraction value we get is 109/12.

After converting the Mixed Number 9 1/12 to the Improper Fraction,the result is 109/12.

The given inputs are 1/5,3/4,9 1/12,5/8

After coverting each input to fraction format we get 1/5,3/4,109/12,5/8

Separate the denominators 5,4,12,8

Calculate the LCM of 5,4,12,8 i.e. 120

## Finding LCM of 5,4,12,8 by Common Division

Arrange the Inputs 5,4,12,8 in a horizontal line separated by commas and divide them with a prime number. Note the quotients in the next row and divide with quotients with prime numbers again. Continue the process until you have all co primes in the last.

 2 5, 4, 12, 8 2 5, 2, 6, 4 5, 1, 3, 2

As all the numbers left in the last row are co primes you need not do the common division process further.

To obtain the Least Common Multiple, multiply the prime numbers with which you have divided the given numbers and the co primes in the last row i.e. 2 x 2 x 5 x 1 x 3 x 2 = 120

Therefore, LCM of 5,4,12,8 is 120

### Finding LCM of 5,4,12,8 using GCF Formula

Step1:

Let's calculate the LCM of first two numbers

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a x b) / GCF(a,b)

GCF(5, 4) = 1

LCM(5, 4) = ( 5 x 4 ) / 1

LCM(5, 4) = 20 / 1

LCM(5, 4) = 20

Step2:

Here we consider the LCM from the above i.e. 20 as first number and the next as 12

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a x b) / GCF(a,b)

GCF(20, 12) = 4

LCM(20, 12) = ( 20 x 12 ) / 4

LCM(20, 12) = 240 / 4

LCM(20, 12) = 60

Step3:

Here we consider the LCM from the above i.e. 60 as first number and the next as 8

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a x b) / GCF(a,b)

GCF(60, 8) = 4

LCM(60, 8) = ( 60 x 8 ) / 4

LCM(60, 8) = 480 / 4

LCM(60, 8) = 120

LCM of 5,4,12,8 is 120

Fractions after converting to a common denominator

24/120,90/120,1090/120,75/120

Arrange fractions in ascending order

24/120 < 75/120 < 90/120 < 1090/120

Ascending Order arrangements from Least to Greatest we get:

1/5 < 5/8 < 3/4 < 9 1/12
