Imagine you and a friend each bought a pizza. Your pizza was cut into 6 pieces and theirs was cut into 8. Each of you eats one slice from your pizza. Who ate more? Because your pizza was cut into less slices that makes the size of each slice bigger. You both ate only one slice, but you technically ate more pizza.

Comparing fractions enhances our critical thinking skills. Being able to properly compare fractions can help us keep things fair, not just for us, but for others, too!
