Question

# Arrange the following rational numbers in descending order and .

Hint:

### Find the least common multiple of denominators and then arrange in

descending order.

## The correct answer is: Yes it's rational numbers

### Given rational numbers are and .

Express the rational numbers with positive denominator by multiplying with**.**

Here, and

So, Now we have and .

By taking LCM of denominators 6,12,18 and 24, we get LCM as 72

On multiplying with 12, we get

On multiplying with 6, we get

On multiplying with 4, we get

On multiplying with 3, we get

On comparing the above fractions with same denominator,

we have -42 > -52 > -60 > -69

Hence

So descending order is
