# Why do you have to multiply or divide both the numerater and denominator of a fraction to find an equivalent fraction?

Whatever you multiply or divide the numerator by, you must do the same to the

denominator. If you multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by different

numbers, you change the value of the fraction and turn it into a different number.

After that, nothing is "equivalent" any more ... you're working with a changed number.
