  • question_answer Which of the following fractions will be in middle if the given fractions are arranged in the descending order of their values? \[\frac{9}{17},\,\frac{13}{26},\,\frac{7}{15},\,\frac{5}{8},\,\frac{3}{7}\]

    A)  \[\frac{7}{15}\]                     

    B)           \[\frac{9}{17}\]

    C)  \[\frac{13}{26}\]                   

    D)           \[\frac{5}{8}\]

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

        We compare given fractions with \[\frac{1}{2}\] and find that \[\frac{9}{17}>\frac{1}{2},\,\frac{13}{26}\,=\frac{1}{2}\,,\,\frac{7}{15}<\frac{1}{2},\,\frac{5}{8}>\frac{1}{2},\,\frac{3}{7}<\frac{1}{2}\] Two fractions are greater than \[\frac{1}{2},\] two are smaller than \[\frac{1}{2}\] and one fractions is equal to \[\frac{1}{2}\]\[\therefore \] While arranging given fractions in descending order of their values \[\frac{13}{26}\] comes in middle.
