Suppose you have a fraction such as 3/7.

To find an equivalent fraction, think of any non-zero integer. How about 6?

Multiply the top and the bottom of your original fraction by this number to get an equivalent fraction. So

3/7 = (3*6)/(7*6) = 18/42

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Can you show me how to do equivalent fractions?

Identifying Equivalent FractionsEquivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value or represent the same part of an object. If a pie is cut into two pieces, each piece is also one-half of the pie. If a pie is cut into 4 pieces, then two pieces represent the same amount of pie that 1/2 did. We say that 1/2 is equivalent to 2/4.Fractions are determined to be equivalent by multiplying the numerator and denominator of one fraction by the same number. This number should be such that the numerators will be equal after the multiplication. For example if we compare 1/2 and 2/4, we would multiply 1/2 by 2/2 which would result in 2/4 so they are equivalent.To compare 1/2 and 3/7 we would multiply 1/2 by 3/3 to produce 3/6. Since 3/6 is not the same as 3/7, the fractions are not equivalent.Fractions equivalent to 1/2 are 2/4, 3/6, 4/8, 5/10, 6/12 ...Fractions equivalent to 1/3 are 2/6, 3/9, 4/12, 5/15, ...Fractions equivalent to 1/4 are 2/8, 3/12, 4/16, 5/20, ...Fractions equivalent to 1/5 are 2/10, 3/15, 4/20, 5/25, ...Fractions equivalent to 2/5 are 4/10, 6/15, 8/20, 10/25, ...


Do fractions and decimals both show parts of a whole?

They can do. But they can also show wholes plus a part. For example, 41/2 or 4.5 represent four wholes and one part out of two of another.


What is used to show that 2 fractions are equivalent?

One way is to show that the cross-products are equal. If A, B, C and D are four integers and B, D are not zero, then A/B = C/D if AD = BC
