**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:**

**Option A is incorrect. 13/15 is greater than 0.865****Option B is correct.****C is not correct.****D is not the correct answer.**
