No.

Restate the question: Abby split a circle into 6 equal parts and shaded 5 parts. Lolo split a congruent circle into 9 equal parts and shaded 8 parts. Do the two circles show equivalent fractions?

The two fractions are 5/6 and 8/9. Since they are both in lowest terms, they are different quantities and cannot be equivalent.

A general method for determining equivalent fractions or to compare them is to convert each fraction to a decimal:

5/6 = 0.833333 ...

8/9 = 0.888888 ...

Equivalent fractions are different representations of the same quantity; in this case the two fractions represent different quantities.

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial
