Ordering fraction from least to greatest

How do i put fractions in order from least to greatest?

Change the denominators to be common and then convert.
EX. 4/5,5/15, 6/30
Put these in order
you have to see what is the LCM for each of the denominators. Like 30. so 4/5 turns into 24/30. I used 30 as my common denominator and to get the numerator I said how many times does 5 go into 30? 6 times! So 6 times 4 equals 24 which is my new numerator. Do this with all the fractions and then you can just put them in order by the top number.
