### MEAP Preparation - Grade 7 Mathematics1.41 Arranging Rational Numbers in Descending Order

 Rational numbers with same denominator: Compare the numerators and arrange the rational numbers in descending order from highest to lowest. Rational numbers with different denominators: Find the LCM of the denominators Write the equivalent fractions Compare the numerators and arrange the rational numbers in descending order from highest to lowest. Example: Arrange the rational numbers 1/2, 2/3, and 7/8 in descending order. The LCM of the denominators 2, 3, and 8 is 24. Rewrite the rational numbers with a common denominator. 1/2 = 12/24 2/3 = 16/24 7/8 = 21/24 Therefore, arranging in descending order, we get 7/8 > 2/3 > 1/2. Directions: Arrange the given rational numbers in descending order. Also write at least 10 examples of your own.
