Arrange in descending order this fractions:

2/7, 7/10 & 1/2

Result

a = (Correct answer is: 2/7 < 1/2 < 7/10) Wrong answer

Solution:

a1=270.2857 a2=710=0.7 a3=12=0.5  a1<a3<a2  a=2/7<1/2<7/10a_{1}=\dfrac{ 2 }{ 7 } \doteq 0.2857 \ \\ a_{2}=\dfrac{ 7 }{ 10 }=0.7 \ \\ a_{3}=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 2 }=0.5 \ \\ \ \\ a_{1}<a_{3}<a_{2} \ \\ \ \\ a=2/7 < 1/2 < 7/10
