Answer

$\frac{3}{4}\gt\frac{17}{24}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{3}{4}$_$\frac{17}{24}$ Now to compare the fractions we need to have same denominators. $\frac{3\times6}{4\times6}$ (Least common multiple of 4 & 24 is 24) = $\frac{18}{24}$ Now $\frac{18}{24}\gt\frac{17}{24}$ i.e. $\frac{3}{4}\gt\frac{17}{24}$
