Best Answer

To compare if they are the same (ie equivalent fractions), make them both into equivalent fractions with the same denominator and compare the numerators.

To find equivalent fractions multiply (or divide) both the numerator and denominator by the same number.

→ 1/2 = (1×2)/(2×2) = 2/4

→ 3/4 = 3/4

The two fractions now have the same denominator (4), so compare their numerators:

½ now has a numerator of 2 whereas ¾ (still ) has a numerator of 3. 2 does not equal 3 so ½ does not equal ¾; ie ½ and ¾ are not equivalent fractions.
