# Which is greater 3/8 or 3/4?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking to compare the two fractions 3/8 and 3/4 to determine which one has a greater value.

$\frac{3}{4} > \frac{3}{8}$

The fraction $\frac{3}{4}$ is greater than $\frac{3}{8}$.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Find a Common Denominator

To compare the fractions $\frac{3}{8}$ and $\frac{3}{4}$, we need a common denominator. The denominators are 8 and 4. The least common multiple of 8 and 4 is 8.

1. Convert the Fractions

Next, we convert $\frac{3}{4}$ into a fraction with a denominator of 8. We can do this by multiplying the numerator and the denominator by 2:

$$\frac{3}{4} = \frac{3 \times 2}{4 \times 2} = \frac{6}{8}$$

1. Compare the Fractions

Now we have two fractions with the same denominator:

• $\frac{3}{8}$
• $\frac{6}{8}$

Since 6 is greater than 3, we conclude that:

$$\frac{3}{8} < \frac{6}{8}$$

This means $\frac{3}{4}$ is greater than $\frac{3}{8}$.

The fraction $\frac{3}{4}$ is greater than $\frac{3}{8}$.
