Lesson Steps:

If you divide 1 by 4, you get 0.25.

2/6 can be written as 1/3 because 6 is divisible by 2, and we divide both numerator (2) and denominator (6) by two, to simplify the fraction.

When you divide 1 by 3, you get 0.3333333.., which is bigger than 0.25. Hence, 1/3 or 2/6 is bigger than 1/4.
