Expert Answer:

T h e space g i v e n space n u m b e r s space a r e space fraction numerator negative 5 over denominator 7 end fraction space a n d space fraction numerator 9 over denominator negative 13 end fraction
T o space c o m p a r e space a n y space t w o space f r a c t i o n s comma space t h e space d e n o m i n a t o r space o f space t h a t space f r a c t i o n s space s h o u l d space b e space e q u a l
S o comma space w e space h a v e space t o space m a k e space t h e space d e n o m i n a t o r s space e q u a l space f o r space b o t h space t h e space f r a c t i o n s space a n d space t h a t space c a n space b e space d o n e space b y space t a k i n g space L C M thin space o f space d e n o m i n a t o r s
L C M left parenthesis 7 comma space 13 right parenthesis equals 91
S o comma space t h e space t w o space f r a c t i o n s space c a n space b e space r e w r i t t e n space a s space
fraction numerator negative 5 cross times 13 over denominator 91 end fraction space a n d space fraction numerator 9 cross times 7 over denominator negative 91 end fraction space i. e. space minus 65 over 91 space a n d space minus 63 over 91
S i n c e space minus 65 less than negative 63 space rightwards double arrow negative 65 over 91 space less than space minus 63 over 91
