To find out if two fractions are equivalent, either reduce them both to their simplest forms (which will be the same number if they're equivalent) or convert them to decimals (which will be the same number if they're equivalent).
To make an equivalent fraction of a given fraction, multiply the numerator and the denominator of the given fraction by the same counting 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
Multiply Or Divide Both The Numerator And The Denominator By The Same Number.
Ella say's that she can find decimal equivalent for lots. Of fractions be cause she knows that the decimal equivalent for 1/5 is 0.2. Name three fractions for which Ella could find the decimal equivalent. Explain how Ella would use 1\5 to find the decimal for each fraction
Because to add or subtract two fractions you first have to find equivalent fractions for both which have the same denominator.
You turn the decimal into a fraction. Then you can find the equivalent fraction.
(1) find the LCD. (2) find the factor that each original denominator needs to be multiplied by to get the LCD. (3) multiply both the numerator and the denominator by that factor.
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.
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.
it helps you find the distance between fractions beacause the new name should be an equivalent fraction
---- 3 fifths is equivalent to ? tenths
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.
