These worksheets teach your beginning students how to compare and order decimals, percentages, and fractions.

When you are comparing fractions, decimals, and percentages, it becomes a complicated affair. Especially considering that you have put all these parameters in a single form for efficient comparison. For instance, if you're comparing a percent and a fraction, write them as fractions or percent and then figure out which is greater. So, if you're given two values 45% and 4/5; which is the greater one? Let us first make the fraction into the percentage form. You only have to multiply the fraction with 100 to make it a percent value, i.e. 4/5×100. The answer is 80%, which is greater than 45%. However, if you have to convert a decimal to a percent, then the method is the same and so are other conversions as well.

When we are comparing multiple values that are expressed as a mix of decimals, fractions, and percents it is best to express all the values in the same form. I find it easiest to express everything as a decimal than we just need to compare place values. When you are converting a percentage to a decimal, just divide it by one-hundred. When you are converting a fraction to a decimal, just divide the numerator by the denominator. These worksheets explain how to compare and order decimals, percents, and fractions. It does hurt to have a calculator when doing these worksheets, but we understand if some teachers prefer not use calculators.
