2/3 vs 3/4 
20020102

 The first one is less than the second one, or
 They are equal.
One day my son had the problem of 2/3 vs 3/4. Without drawing out a pie chart, how in the world can a child "eyeball" a problem like this and tell what the correct answer is? I've also tried to teach about making common denominators, but that's going over his head at this point. Answered by Denis Hanson and Harley Weston.
