Question

Compare the following number.

`(-25)/8,(-9)/4`

Solution

Let us first compare `25/8 and 9/4` .

`25/8 = (25 xx 1)/(8 xx 1) = 25/8 ; 9/4 = (9 xx 2)/(4 xx 2) = 18/8`

Now , `25/8 > 18/8`

`therefore 25/8 > 9/4`

`therefore -25/8 < -9/4` .

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
