    Convert them all to common denominators, or else convert them to decimal form. Then list them in order.

    Your answer will be the corresponding original fractions, listed in the same order.

    If you really don't find it, then use the "standard" common divisor, which is :

    11 \times 8 \times 6 = 528

    Does it help ?
