To compare fractions, like 2/3 and 3/4, start by modeling the fractions. Next, use a common denominator to make equivalent fractions. The fractions 2/3 and 3/4 can be modeled as the equivalent fractions 8/12 and 9/12. When fractions have the same denominator, the greater the numerator the greater the fraction. So 3/4 is greater than 2/3.
