For example you have 5/25. You pick a number for example 10. you multiply the denominator by 10 and that's the new denominator and you would multiply the numerator by 10 also and that would be your new numerator. So in this case it would be 50/250. Now you don't have to multiply them by 10 but you do have multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number that you pick.

If you can multiply both the numerator and denominator of one fraction by the same number to get the other fraction then the fractions are equivalent.

For example, 5/6 and 10/12 are equivalent because 5 x 2 = 10 and 6 x 2 = 12
