The fractions 1/4 , 2/3 ,3/8 ,1/2 have to be arranged in descending order. First make the denominator of all the fractions the same.

`1/4 = 6/24`

`2/3 = 16/24`

`3/8 = 9/24`

`1/2 = 12/24`

`6/24 < 9/24 < 12/24 < 16/24`

=> `1/4 < 3/8 < 1/2 < 2/3`

**The fractions can be arranged in descending order as follows: `2/3` , `1/2` , `3/8` , `1/4` **
