Hi Simone007....

The best way to find out the answer is to change the fraction into a decimal number.

1/40 = 0.025
1/400 = 0.0025

Clearly, 1/40 or 0.025 is larger than 0.0025.

The rule is if the numerator (top number) is the same, the larger the denominator (bottom number) the smaller the value.

Hope this helps!

no. think that you have 2 squares of the same size. One is divided into 40, the other is divided into 400. You shade in 1 little square in each big squares. Which square is bigger??????????

1/40 is bigger than 1/40divided by 10
1/40 divided by 10 = 1/40 multiplied by 1/10
1/40 *1/10 = 1/400
thus 1/40 is bigger than 1/400
