How to Order Fractions, Integers and Mixed Numbers

To compare and order fractions we must first convert all integers, mixed numbers (mixed fractions) and fractions into values that we can compare. We do this by first converting all terms into fractions, finding the least common denominator (LCD), then rewriting each term as an equivalent fraction with the LCD. Then we compare the numerators of each fraction and put them in correct order from least to greatest or greatest to least.

Steps to compare and order fractions, integers and mixed numbers

Convert integers and mixed numbers to improper fractions

Find the least common denominator LCD of all the fractions

Rewrite fractions as equivalent fractions using the LCD

Order the new fractions by the numerator

Match original inputs to the ordered fractions to see the final order
