Equivalent fractions, e.g. 1/2 = 2/4 = 3/6, etc.

Equivalent fractions are fractions that are equal. So, 1/2 and 2/4 are equivalent.

5/10 is equal to 1/2. Whatever you multiply the numerator by you must multiply the denominator and you will always get same valued fractions

Equivalent fractions have the same values when reduced to their lowest terms as for example 4/8 and 3/6 are both equal to 1/2

fractions equal to 54 = 54/1, 108/2, 162/3,...

1/2

non examples of like fractions = fractions that are not equal in value to other fractions. For example: 1/2 and 3/4. 1/2=.5 and 3/4=.75 since .5 does not equal .75, then 1/2 & 3/4 are not "like fractions" (see below for a summary of like fractions). Additional Info.: Like fraction examples: 1/2 & 2/4 (both fractions = the decimal value .5) 1/8 & 3/24 (both fractions = the decimal value .125) A "like fraction" is a fraction that has the same decimal value as another fraction. For example: 1/2 and 2/4 both = the decimal value .5 The easiest way to create a like fraction is to use a fraction that has a decimal value of 1. Simply multiple it times another fraction to create a like fraction. For example: Using 2/2 (which = decimal value 1), you get 2/4 as follows: 2/2 * 1/2 = 2/4 = .5 Note: 2/2 is used to create the "like fraction" 2/4. 2/4 and 1/2 are the "like fractions" because they both = the decimal value .5 You can use any fraction that is = to decimal value 1, for example: 200/200 * 1/2 = 200/400 = .5 200/400 & 1/2 are the "like fractions" that both have a .5 decimal value. You should remember this fact because it is used frequently in algebra and higher math.
