we can find it by multiplying by any no.

Mainly when you divide by a fraction - that is equivalent to multiplying by its reciprocal.

An equivalent fraction to 5/12 could be 10/24 by multiplying the denominator and the numerator by 2.

To get an equivalent fraction, multiply both numbers by the same number. For example, multiplying by 2, you get 6/16.

No. The reason you can multiply a fraction by (x/x) to find an equivalent fraction is because for almost any x, (x/x) = 1. This is not the case for zero. Zero divided by zero does NOT equal 1, so multiplying the fraction by a value not equal to 1 will create a different fraction.

As a fraction of 1, yes. Multiplying a number by this fraction will be equivalent to 80% of that number.

Because doing so is equivalent to multiplying or dividing by x/x, which can be cancelled down to 1.

if you multiply a number by a certain factor and then divide it by the same factor you do not change anything. It is like multiplying by 1. If you multiply only the numerator you have changed the answer and it is not equivalent.

it is the Same Number Just 2,3,4.... Times As Much

It is finding an equivalent fraction.

We call that cross multiplying.

You turn the decimal into a fraction. Then you can find the equivalent fraction.
