Calculation:
Equivalent ratios are two ratios which have same relationship between the numbers.
The given ratios can be simplified further by cross multiplying as:
37=1842
3(42)=18(7)
126=126
As, both the results are equal. The given ratios are equivalent.

Step 1
Find the least common denominator or LCM of the two denominators:
LCM of 42 and 7 is 42
Next, find the equivalent fraction of both fractional numbers with denominator 42
For the 1st fraction, since 42×1=42
1842=18×142×1=1842
Likewise, for the 2nd fraction, since 7×6=42
37=3×67×6=1842
Since the denominators are now the same, the fraction with the bigger numerator is the greater fraction
1842=1842 or 1842=37
