What are Equivalent Fractions?
Equivalent fractions are fractions with different numbers representing the same part of a whole. They have different numerators and denominators, but their fractional values are the same.
For example, think about the fraction 1/2. It means half of something. You can also say that 6/12 is half, and that 50/100 is half. They represent the same part of the whole. These equivalent fractions contain different numbers but they mean the same thing: 1/2 = 6/12 = 50/100
How to Find Equivalent Fractions
Multiply both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same whole number. As long as you multiply both top and bottom of the fraction by the same number, you won't change the value of the fraction, and you'll create an equivalent fraction.
Example Equivalent Fractions
Find fractions equivalent to 3/4 by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same whole number:
Therefore these are all equivalent fractions:
Note that if you reduce all of these fractions to lowest terms, they equal 3/4.
