Divide the denominator into the numerator. If the answers are the same decimal, the fractions are equivalent.

You divide the equivalent positive numbers. Then you add a negative sign to the result.

Divide the denominator into the numerator.

Divide the bottom of the fraction by the top one

The easiest way for me to determine if one fraction is equivalent to another is to divide the top number by the bottom number on both fractions. If you get the same results with both fractions, then they are equivalent.For example:Are 3/6 and 7/14 equivalent?If you divide 6 into 3, you will get .50, or 1/2If you divide 14 into 7, you will get .50, or 1/2So both of these fractions are equivalent.Another example:Are 5/8 and 2/3 equivalent?5/8 and 3/7If you divide 8 into 5, you will get .625, or 625/1000If you divide 3 into 2, you will get .66, or 66/100So these two are not equivalent.

multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number, or divide each side by a common factor.

if you can divide whole numbers, turn the fraction into a whole number by finding its equivalent and replacing the fraction with that equivalent. Then divide the new number which should be whole and you have your answer.

Whether they are equivalent doesn't matter. To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the denominator into the numerator.

Non-equivalent fractions are fractions that are not equal
