To get the right answer you have to bring both fractions to a common denominator.  In this case it is 12

1/3 = 4/12
1/4 = 3/12

4/12 is bigger than 3/12   thus 1/3 is bigger than 1/4

Knew that had to be a "newbie" question, no one else would ask a question THAT stupid!!

Life is one big roller coaster ride. Enjoy the highs, and forget the lows. You only get ONE ride.

Well 1/3=0.333  and 1/4=.25

So 1/3 is bigger

It is very obvious 1/3 is bigger than 1/4.

1 apple divided among 3 friends.

1 apple divided among 4 friends.

In which situation, do you get a bigger share? I'm sure you'd say, when you are sharing 1 apple with 2 others, you get a bigger share.

So, 1/3 is bigger than 1/4
