# is 5 /12 bigger than 3/7

You can figure out if two fractions are bigger by just cross multiplying the numerator and denominator of each fraction.   $\frac{5}{12} \frac{3}{7}$ Multiply the 5 and 7, and then the 3 and 12. Be sure to start with the numerator of the first fraction.  $\frac{5}{12} \frac{3}{7}$ 5 * 7 = 35, 3 * 12 = 36 So $\frac{3}{7}$ is bigger.
