If it's hard to distinguish the magnitude of the fractions then here is my simple solution.

First look at the denominators A through C. 27, 9, 3. Obviously, the common denominator here is 27. Make the denominator 27 to compare the three fractions. A = 11/27, B = 15/27, C = 9/27. This alone eliminates A and C.

Compare B to D. B = 45/81, D = 25/81. Eliminate D.

Compare B to E. B = 25/40, E = 6/40.

The answer is B.

Hope this helps.

Hi!

I may be a bit too late. But adding the details here, hope someone else will find it useful!

A. \(\frac{11}{27} = \frac{9}{27}+\frac{2}{27}\) = A little over 0.33<----Helps to remember common reciprocals

B. \(\frac{5}{9} = 0.555\) <----Helps to remember common reciprocals

C. \(\frac{1}{3} = 0.33\)

D. \(\frac{25}{81}\). Note that \(\frac{25}{100} < \frac{25}{81} < \frac{25}{75}\) = \(\frac{1}{4} < \frac{25}{81} < \frac{1}{3}\). \(\frac{25}{81}\) is between 0.25 and 0.33

E. \(\frac{3}{20} = \frac{2}{20} + \frac{1}{20}\)= a little over 0.1

Clearly B = 0.55 is the greatest.
