To find which of two fractions is greater, first find a common denominator. The fraction with the larger numerator is the greater fraction. Note that it is not necessary to multiply the terms of the common denominator; it is only the numerator that must be worked out.4/15 = (4 x 19)/(19 x 15) = 76/(19 x 15)5/19 = (5 x 15)/(19 x 15) = 75/(19 x 15)This shows that 4/15 is greater than 5/19.

Assuming the fractions are 13/15 and 16/19 (and not 1/315 nor 1/619), then 13/15 is greater.

14/15 is greater

19/20

1595/100 or 15 and 19/20

15/16 is greater.

No because 19/20 is greater than 14/15

6/10 is equal to 9/15, and its denominator is 4 greater than its numerator.

19/15

Yes and it is simply 15/1 as an improper fraction because its numerator is greater than its denominator

Making the totally unjustified assumption that the fractions are 13/17 and 15/19 and not 1/317 nor 1/519, the bigger fraction is 15/19.

11/15

Greater. observe, 15/17 + 4/17 = 15 + 4. So 15 + 4 = 19 and 19 is greater than 17, therefor it is greater than 1. The entire answer is 1 2/17.

As far as simplify meaning finding a smaller denominator, the answer is no. The only common factor between 19 and 15 is 1, so the fraction cannot be reduced, but it is an improper fraction, so you could turn it into a mixed number: 19/15 = 1 4/15.
