If you double the denominator of any fraction, the number of unit fractions stays the same but each unit fraction is half as big. So the value of the fraction is half what it was when you double the denominator.

2×(5/8)=(2×5)/8=10/8

You have to double the numerator, but the value of the fraction remians the same but if you dont double the numerator then you dont have the same fraction

If the numerator of the fraction is increased and the denominator doesn't change, then the value of the fraction increases.

the numerator is the top number and the denominator is the lower number. If they get switched it can change the entire value of the fraction.

If the dividend (the number being divided into) is zero, then there is no change in value as the result is also zero; Otherwise:if the fraction is a proper fraction (the numerator is less than the denominator) then the (absolute) value of the dividend will increase; otherwiseif the fraction is an identity (the numerator equals the denominator) then the value of the dividend will not change; otherwisethe fraction is an improper fraction (the numerator is greater than the denominator) and the (absolute) value of the dividend will decrease.

You cannot, unless you also change the value of the fraction.

If the denominator has a zero value.

Denominator = Numerator/Value

It is a different fraction!

If the numerator and denominator are equal, then the value of the fraction is ' 1 '.

a value of zero in the denominator makes the fraction undefined

The value of the fraction increases.

As long as the whole number is not zero, it becomes a unit fraction with a larger denominator, ie one with a smaller value.
