Randy and Chrissy eat some of the blueberries from a package for a snack. Randy eats 1 4 of the blueberries from the package. Chrissy eats 1 3 of the blueberries from the package. Which statement about the amount of blueberries Randy and Chrissy each eat is true?

A. Since the two fractions do not refer to the same whole, it is not possible to tell who eats more blueberries.

B. Since fractions that have different denominators cannot be compared, it is not possible to tell who eats more blueberries.

C. Since smaller denominators mean bigger fractions, then 1 3 > 1 4 , which means Chrissy eats more blueberries than Randy.

D. Since bigger denominators mean bigger fractions, then 1 4 > 1 3 , which means that Randy eats more blueberries than Chrissy
