    Answer: Yes

    Step-by-step explanation: To see which is greater, notice that 3/4 and 7/8 are unlike fractions so we need to get a common denominator.

    The common denominator of 8 and 4 is the least common multiple of 8 and 4 or 8. Notice that our first fraction 7/8 already has an 8 in the denominator so it stays the same. To get a 8 in the denominator of 3/4, we multiply the numerator and the denominator by 2 which gives us 6/8.

    Notice that we now have like fractions since both fractions have an 8 in the denominator. To compare like fractions, we simply look at the numerators. Here, since 7 is bigger than 6, 7/8 is greater than 6/8.

    So yes, 7/8 is greater than 3/4.
