00:00:01.210 --> 00:00:09.530
Complete one compared to seven-ninths using less than, equal to, or greater than.
00:00:11.610 --> 00:00:16.970
We’re trying to compare the whole number one with the fraction seven-ninths.
00:00:18.190 --> 00:00:24.680
We need to turn this whole number one into a fraction with the denominator of nine.
00:00:26.690 --> 00:00:33.480
It must have a denominator of nine and also be equal to the whole number one.
00:00:35.080 --> 00:00:38.960
The only value that the numerator can be is nine.
00:00:39.520 --> 00:00:44.880
We can write the whole number one as the fraction nine over nine.
00:00:46.530 --> 00:00:54.920
And then, when two fractions have a common denominator, to compare their values, we only have to compare their numerators.
00:00:55.800 --> 00:00:58.160
Nine is bigger than seven.
00:00:59.330 --> 00:01:03.220
Nine over nine is more than seven over nine.
00:01:03.770 --> 00:01:07.200
Nine-ninths is greater than seven-ninths.
00:01:08.400 --> 00:01:12.710
And that means, one is greater than seven-ninths.
00:01:14.420 --> 00:01:17.430
Our missing symbol was the greater than sign.
