-3 2/7 or -3 4/5

explain how to do

Solution:

The two numbers are - 3 2/7 = -23/7 and - 3 4/5 = - 19/5.

To find which of the fraction is greater, at first we have to make the denominators equal. So LCM of 7 and 5 = 35

- 23/7 = -23 x 5 / 7 x 5 = - 115/35

- 19/5 = - 19 x 7 / 5 x 7 = - 133/35

Since the fractions are negative integers, so the fraction - 115/35 i.e. - 3 2/7 is greater than - 133/35 i.e. - 3 4/5.

**Ans: - 3 2/7.**
