### Order the following fractions from Least to Greatest:

Explanation
The fractions can be ordered by finding a common denominator and comparing the numerators. In this case, the common denominator is 18. After converting the fractions, we get 6/18, 9/18, 10/18, and 12/18. Comparing the numerators, we can see that 6/18 is the smallest, followed by 9/18, 10/18, and 12/18. Therefore, the fractions can be ordered as 1/3, 1/2, 5/9, and 4/6 from least to greatest.

### Order the fractions from GREATEST to LEAST:

Explanation
The fractions are ordered from greatest to least based on their numerical values. The fraction 7/2 is the largest because it represents a value greater than 3, while the fraction 2/3 is the next largest because it represents a value greater than 0.5. The fraction 3/8 is smaller than both of these fractions because it represents a value less than 0.5, and the fraction 1/4 is the smallest because it represents a value less than 0.5 as well. Therefore, the correct order from greatest to least is 7/2, 2/3, 3/8, 1/4.
