Arrange the following numbers in ascending order of magnitude 6/7, 13/15, 0.865

A. 6/7 < 13/15 < 0.865

B. 6/7 < 0.865 < 13/15

C. 13/15 < 0.865 < 6/7

D. 0.865 < 6/7 < 13/15

QUICK ANSWER…

B

DETAILS…

To resolve this, we would have to reduce the fractions to their corresponding decimals and then compare each value.

So,

6/7 = 0.857

13/15 = 0.867

0.865 = 0.865

So, arranging these in ascending order, we have:

0.857 < 0.865 < 0.867

= 6/7 < 0.865 < 13/15

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect. 13/15 is greater than 0.865
  2. Option B is correct.
  3. C is not correct.
  4. D is not the correct answer.
