Write the following in decreasing order:

Answer :

Now for arranging rational numbers in increasing or decreasing order make the denominator of numbers equal. But as we can see from the numbers that would make the whole process very long.

We can divide the numbers and can calculate the approximate values.

21/17 = 1.235

31/27 = 1.148

13/11 = 1.18

41/37 = 1.10

51/47 = 1.08

9/8 = 1.125

Now we can easily arrange the numbers as follows

21/17 > 13/11 > 31/27 > 9/8 > 41/37 > 51/47
