Simplify the fraction. That will give you one equivalent fraction. For additional equivalent fractions, you can expand the original fraction, or the simplified fraction, by multiplying both numerator and denominator with the same number.

-- An improper fraction is a fraction with a numerator that's larger than its denominator. -- There's nothing you can do to 7/34 that will give you a fraction with a numerator that's larger than its denominator.

She bought the coat on sale at a fraction of the original price.Is the correct answer a whole number or a fraction?

26 over 6 (26/6) You get this answer by multiplying 4*6 and then adding 2. This gets you 26, then you put the 26 over the original denominator, which is 6. To give you 26/6.

First, simplify this fraction to simplest terms. That will give you one equivalent fraction. If you want additional equivalent fractions, multiplying numerator and denominator by the same number will give you additional equivalent fractions.

A fraction and its reduced form are equivalent. The numerator and denominator of the original (non-reduced) fraction will have been divided by their greatest common factor to give the reduced fraction.

Sale price/original price will give you a fraction. The fraction x100 gives you the percentage that the sale price is of the original price.100-(that percentage) gives the percent taken off.

A fraction of a fraction is yet another (usually smaller) fraction. For example 1/4 of 1/3 = (1x1) / (4x3) = 1/12 Only when both or one of the fractions is an "improper" fraction (larger than 1) does the multiplication give a result that is larger than the beginning fractions. For example : 7/4 x 3/5 = 21/20 = 1 1/20

Not necessarily. -1/2 is a fraction which is less than 1.-10 * -1/2 = 5, a product which is bigger than -10.

A percentage is always something over 100. So you simply need to multiply your fraction to get the denominator (20) to be 100. You can do this by multiplying by five: 3 x 5 = 15 20 x 5 = 100 This give you 15/100 which is equal to 15% Another way is my typing the fraction into a calculator and then multiplying by 100.

Because you're increasing both parts of the fraction by the same ratio !
