Q: Do you divide equivalent fractions?

Write your answer...

Divide the denominator into the numerator. If the answers are the same decimal, the fractions are equivalent.

You divide the equivalent positive numbers. Then you add a negative sign to the result.

Divide the denominator into the numerator.

The easiest way for me to determine if one fraction is equivalent to another is to divide the top number by the bottom number on both fractions. If you get the same results with both fractions, then they are equivalent.For example:Are 3/6 and 7/14 equivalent?If you divide 6 into 3, you will get .50, or 1/2If you divide 14 into 7, you will get .50, or 1/2So both of these fractions are equivalent.Another example:Are 5/8 and 2/3 equivalent?5/8 and 3/7If you divide 8 into 5, you will get .625, or 625/1000If you divide 3 into 2, you will get .66, or 66/100So these two are not equivalent.

Scaling- when you multiply or divide equivalent fractions

Divide the bottom of the fraction by the top one

multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number, or divide each side by a common factor.

We deny the premise and maintain that you can divide fractions.

multiply and divide fractions!-.-

if you can divide whole numbers, turn the fraction into a whole number by finding its equivalent and replacing the fraction with that equivalent. Then divide the new number which should be whole and you have your answer.

Whether they are equivalent doesn't matter. To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the denominator into the numerator.

You multiply (or divide) the numerator and the denominator by the same number. For example, 1/2 is equivalent to 3/6, which you get by multiplying both parts (numerator and denominator) by 3.

To find equivalent fractions, you need to multiply or divide the top and bottom of the fraction by the same amount. For 30/35 we can divide both top and bottom by 5 to get 6/7. This is the simplest equivalent fraction. We can then multiply top and bottom by 2 to get 12/14, or by 3 to get 18/21, or by 4 to get 24/28, and so on to find other equivalent fractions.

Non-equivalent fractions are fractions that are not equal

The usual method is to convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with a common denominator. Then you can simply compare the numerators. You can also convert each of the fractions to a decimal - this can easily be done with a calculator, simply divide the numerator by the denominator.

To find the equivalent fractions, you first need to divide both numerator and denominator by any common divisors. In this case both 42 and 75 can divide by 3, so do this and you get 14/25. The next step is to multiply this simplest form fraction by any integer (1,2,3,4...) to get the other equivalent fractions. This gives the first few equivalent fractions of 42/75 as: 14/25, 28/50, 56/100, 70/125...

Because they are equivalent fractions

Multiply Or Divide Both The Numerator And The Denominator By The Same Number.

You can convert them to equivalent fractions with like denominators, then simply compare the numerators.You might also convert each fraction to a decimal (divide the numerator by the denominator); then you can also compare them.

To find equivalent fractions, you need to multiply or divide the top and bottom of the fraction by the same amount.

28/42 divide both by 2 = 14/21 divide both by 7 = 2/3

I think that equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same answer, at he end.

It is simple all u really do is divide reguarlly.......

Equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value as another fraction.

When you divide by fractions, you invert and multiply.
