To compare the fractions ( \frac{3}{11} ) and ( \frac{7}{17} ), you can either find a common denominator and compare the numerators, or you can cross-multiply and compare the results.

Method 1: Finding a common denominator: [ \frac{3}{11} \times \frac{17}{17} = \frac{51}{187} ] [ \frac{7}{17} \times \frac{11}{11} = \frac{77}{187} ]

Now, since ( \frac{51}{187} < \frac{77}{187} ), we conclude that ( \frac{3}{11} < \frac{7}{17} ).

Method 2: Cross-multiplication: [ 3 \times 17 = 51 ] [ 7 \times 11 = 77 ]

Since ( 51 < 77 ), again we find that ( \frac{3}{11} < \frac{7}{17} ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
