In what situtation can you use only multiplication to find equivalent fraction? Give an example
When the fraction is in simplest terms.
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.
If 7/15 is the simplest form, equivalent fractions will be greater. To make things greater, use multiplication.
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.
Because to add or subtract two fractions you first have to find equivalent fractions for both which have the same denominator.
The multiplicative property, probably.
no. you can multiply straight across in fraction multiplication
You turn the decimal into a fraction. Then you can find the equivalent fraction.
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.
A number multiplied by one is itself. This is the Identitiy Property of Multiplication.
---- 3 fifths is equivalent to ? tenths
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.
Equivalent FractionsEquivalent Fractions are fractions that are equal. For example, 1/2, 2/4, 3/6, 4/8, etc. Another example is 2/3, 4/6, 6/9, 8/12 and 10/15. To find equivalent fractions, multiply the top and bottom numbers of any fraction by the same number.
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...
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.
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)
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
commutative (order) property
To find equivalent fractions, you need to multiply or divide the top and bottom of the fraction by the same amount. For 30/35 we can divide both top and bottom by 5 to get 6/7. This is the simplest equivalent fraction. We can then multiply top and bottom by 2 to get 12/14, or by 3 to get 18/21, or by 4 to get 24/28, and so on to find other equivalent fractions.
