When the fraction is in simplest terms.

Identity property of Multiplication c:

If 7/15 is the simplest form, equivalent fractions will be greater. To make things greater, use multiplication.

Because to add or subtract two fractions you first have to find equivalent fractions for both which have the same denominator.

no. you can multiply straight across in fraction multiplication

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

If you look at a multiplication table you can find 14 and 28 on the 1 and 2 line. Any of the other matching numbers like 2 and 4, 3 and 6 etc would also be equivalent. That's a neat way to use the multiplication table.

You can either convert fractions to decimals and compare the decimal numbers; find equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare numerators or find equivalent fractions with the same numerator and then compare denominators.

it helps you find the distance between fractions beacause the new name should be an equivalent fraction

Fractions that are equivalent to 3/4 are: 6/8, 9/12, 12/16, etc. To find equivalent fractions, multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number.

---- 3 fifths is equivalent to ? tenths

when you are trying to find a price

Well, it depends what the fraction is so mainly the situation is for example if the fraction is 45/34 that wouldn't work because the numerater is larger than the denomenater. I hope this helps you out some!

The difference is that they equivalent fractions worksheets have graphics and explain the concepts in easier to understand language. I find them to be an easier and fun way to introduce and explain fractions.

Find the equivalent fractions with the same denominator (the least common multiple) and then compare the numerators.

You Find Fractions

idk you need to find it yourself * * * * * equivalent fractions.

To compare two fractions, find a common denominator, then convert each fraction to equivalent fractions with that common denominator. Finally, you compare the numerators. 5/6

To find the equivalent fractions, you first need to put the fraction in its simplest form. In this case, 86 and 90 can both divide by 2, so do this and you get 43/45. To find equivalent fractions, you multiply this simplest form fraction by any integer (1, 2, 3, 4...). This gives the equivalent fractions of 86/90 as: 43/45, 129/135, 172/180...

3/7, 9/21

6/18 and 9/27......you can find out equivalent fractions by multiplying the numerator (top number) by the same number as the denominator (bottom number)

it helps you find the distance between fractions because the new name should be an equivalent fraction. Therefore it should be able to be divided\multiplied by 2 to make the original number.

Identity property of multiplication: States that when a given number is muliplied by one (fraction that equals 1) the result equals the given number.By reducing them to their lowest terms by means of their greatest common factors.

You can always find equivalent fractions by multiplying a fraction by 2. Therefore, 27/35 is the same as 54/70 and the same as 108/140.
