As  all  the  numerators

fraction  49/196  is  the

Which  of  the  following
fractions is the largest?
(71/181),

(214/519),

(429/1141)

(71/181) = (71 X 6) / (181 X
6) = 426/1086
(214/519)  =  (214  X  2)  /
(519 X 2) = 428/1038

The  numerators  are  now
all  ALMOST  equal  (426,
428 and 429). The smallest
denominator is 1038.
So,  the  largest  fraction
must  be  428/1038    that  is
214/519 :)
