There are many different fractions. One of them are called equivalent fractions. In this post, I will be explaining what equivalent fractions are and how to solve them.

What are equivalent fractions?

How to Solve:

To get the equivalent of a fraction, you must multiply or divide both the numerator and the denominator by the same number. Whatever you do to the numerator, you must do to the denominator.

An example of an equivalent fraction is 1/2 and 4/8. In this case you are multiplying or dividing by 4. You multiply 1 and 2 by 4. You divide 4 and 8 by 4.

Here is a picture showing 1/2 and 4/8.
