    I’ll tell you what. Send me 7/9 of $10 000 and I’ll send you 0.7 of it back.

    0.7 = 7/10  

    7/10 < 7/9

    because

    7*9 < 7 *10

    note that 7/9 = 0.777777

    so 7/9 is greater than 0.7

    Rewrite 0.7 as a common fraction

    7/10

    The larger the number in the denominator the smaller the fraction

    Think of a pizza

    You cut it into 9 slices.  You cut another pizza into 10 slices.  Which pizza has the bigger slices? 

    Take another 2 pizzas.  Cut one into 4 slices and the other into 3 slices.  Which pizza has the bigger slices?  Compare the numbers in the denominators. 

    Another way of thinking about size Rewrite both numbers as common fractions. 

    0.7 = 7/10, 7/9

    Find the common denominator

    7/10 X 9/9 = 63/90

    7/9 X 10/10 = 70/90 

    Which fraction is closer to 90/90?

    0.7 = 7/10

    If you had 7 pizzas and you divided then among 9 friends you'd get a bigger share than if you divided them among 10 friends.

    Stated another way, if the numerators are the same, the larger the denominator the smaller the fraction (and vice versa).

    7/9 > 7/10 (0.7)

    Convert  to decimals. 

    0.7 

    7/9 = 0.7777.....

    So 7/9 > 0.7 by 0.07777.....

    The 0.7 is 7/10, and you are comparing it to 7/9.

    Keeping in mind that 1/2 > 1/3 > 1/4 > 1/5 etc.,

    you can see that 7/9 = 7 x 1/9 > 7 x 1/10 = 7/10.

    So 7/9 is greater.

    7/9 or 0.777777.... etc is greater than 0.7

    you have a calculator...

    7/9 = 0.777

    which is greater than 0.70

    alternate:

    compare 7/10 to 7/9

    latter has smaller denominator, therefore fraction is larger.
