Q:

Which of the following are in descending order of their value?

A) 5/9, 7/11, 8/15, 11/17 B) 5/9, 8/15, 11/17, 7/11
C) 11/17 , 7/11, 8/15, 5/9 D) 11/17, 7/11, 5/9, 8/15

Answer:   D) 11/17, 7/11, 5/9, 8/15



Explanation:

Converting each of the given fractions into decimal form, we get

\inline \fn_jvn \frac{5}{9}=0.55\: ,\frac{7}{11}=0.63\: ,\frac{8}{15}=0.533\: ,\frac{11}{17}=0.647

Clearly, 0.647>0.63>0.55>0.533

so ,\inline \fn_jvn \frac{11}{17}>\frac{7}{11}>\frac{5}{9}>\frac{8}{15}

Q:

If two fractions, each of which has a value between 0 and 1, are multiplied together, the product will be :

A) always greater than either of the original fractions B) always less than either of the original fractions
C) sometimes greater and sometimes less than either of the original fractions D) remains the same
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) always less than either of the original fractions

Explanation:

We can easily Answer this by taking some values.

 

The question states that the two fractions, each have values between 0 and 1.

Let us say one of the fraction is 1/2 and the other fraction is 1/3 .

The product of the two fractions is 1/2 x 1/3 = 1/6 .
 is lesser than both 1/2  and 1/3 .

So, the correct answer is that the product is always less than either of the original fractions
