In what situtation can you use only multiplication to find equivalent fraction? Give an example

When the fraction is in simplest terms.

Identity property of multiplication: States that when a given number is muliplied by one (fraction that equals 1) the result equals the given number.By reducing them to their lowest terms by means of their greatest common factors.

If 7/15 is the simplest form, equivalent fractions will be greater. To make things greater, use multiplication.

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.

The multiplicative property, probably.

Because to add or subtract two fractions you first have to find equivalent fractions for both which have the same denominator.

no. you can multiply straight across in fraction multiplication

You turn the decimal into a fraction. Then you can find the equivalent fraction.

If you look at a multiplication table you can find 14 and 28 on the 1 and 2 line. Any of the other matching numbers like 2 and 4, 3 and 6 etc would also be equivalent. That's a neat way to use the multiplication table.

A number multiplied by one is itself. This is the Identitiy Property of Multiplication.
