• Think of it this way. Think of 100. 1/4 of 100 is 25. 1/5 of 100 is 20. So, 1/4 would be larger.

• 1/4 is larger. The smaller the fraction, the smaller the number. Not bashing, but if you want to brush up on your math skills go to www.math.com Amazing site for us that are bad in math. LOL!!

• Think of a pie. If you cut in in 4 pieces, one piece is1/4. If you cut it into 5 pieces, one piece is 1/5, and it is smaller than the 1/4 piece. The larger the bottom number in the fraction, the smaller each piece will be, because thats how many equal portions (pieces) the whole (pie) was divided into. The more pieces there are, the smaller each individual piece is.

• I was thinking this was a no brainer but some on here probably didn't finish school or pay attention. We do have a lot of teen moms on here.

• I totally understand OP. Look at it like this. The five pieces to make a whole vs. four pieces to make a whole. Those five pieces would have to be smaller than the four to make a whole. I volunteer to tutor after school sometimes and yes there are adults that have problems in math. No worries. At least you asked. The is no such thing as a dumb question.
