Converting a fraction into a mixed number is just as easy but it is harder to multiply To multiply a mixed fraction by a fraction you will need to multiply the denominator (the bottom number of a fraction) by the whole number then add the numerator (the top number of a fraction) and that will be your new numerator. Then multiply the two fractions (straight across). Finally put you final answer in simplest form if needed.

An equivalent fraction is just a multiple of the one that you have (i.e it is the one that you have, scaled up or down). So multiply the fraction that you have until either the numerator or the denominator match the given numerator/denominator of the fraction with the missing number. The number in the corresponding place on the fraction that you multiplied is the missing number.
