Given that x=111110/111111, y=222221/222223, z=333331/333334, which is the biggest and which is the smallest?
It is easier to approach by looking at it in reverse. Which term is farthe away from 1? (i.e. which is bigger - 1/111111, 2/222223, or 3/333334)
In order (smallest to largest)
y` = 6/666669
z` = 6/666668
x` = 6/666666
Therefore, from largest to smallest, y,z,x.
