Benchmark fractions can be defined as common factions that we can measure or judge against, when measuring, comparing or ordering other fractions. Benchmark fractions are easy to visualize and identify, and thus, help in estimating the parts. When comparing two fractions with different numerators and denominators, we can either make their denominators common or compare them to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2.
