LCM of 4 and 10 is**20**

Next, find the equivalent fraction of both fractional numbers with denominator 20 - For the 1st fraction, since 4 × 5 = 20,

84 = 8 × 54 × 5 = 4020 - Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 10 × 2 = 20,

710 = 7 × 210 × 2 = 1420 - Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
- 4020 > 1420 or 84 > 710
