Yes because if you try to make them alike fractions you would make 1/8 into 4/32 by multiplying the top and the bottom by 4 since 8*4=32. So 3/32 is less than 4/32.

1/8 is the same as 3/24

3/32 is smaller than 3/24, since 1/32 is smaller than 1/24.

Make the denominators the same then you can easily tell

1/8 is a 4/32 in disguise (multiply by 4/4 which is really a 1 & doesn’t change the value of the original fraction but turns the 8 into a 32 for easy comparison), Now which is greater

3/32 or 4/32

It is easy to see that 4/32 OR 1/8 is greater than 3/32

1/8 is equivalent to 1*4/ (8*4) = 4/32

Therefore 3/32 < 1/8

Yes. 3 goes into 32 over 10 times, while 1 goes into 8 only 8 times.
