$\frac{17}{30}$, $\frac{36}{60}$ to compare two fractions lets have common denominator. 30 & 60 has least common multiple as 60. So multiply numerator and denominator of first fraction with 2. $\frac{17\times2}{30\times2}$, $\frac{36}{60}$ = $\frac{34}{60}$, $\frac{36}{60}$ Now, $\frac{34}{60}\lt\frac{36}{60}$ (numerator of first fraction is less then second) = $\frac{17}{30}\lt\frac{36}{60}$
