EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS

Numerator= Top Number

Denominator= Bottom Number

Equivalent Fractions appear differently, but have the same value.

The fraction shaded on the left hand side is 1/2 and the

fraction shaded on the right hand side is 2/4

some equivalent fractions?

REMEMBER THAT EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS USE

DIFFERENT NUMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!

If you got 1/2 of the pizza, your friend got 2/4 of the pizza ,and your other

friend got 4/8 of the pizza, would you all be getting the same amount???

Equivalent Fractions?

Equivalent Fractions can be found by

multiplying or dividing both the

numerator and the denominator by the

same number.

Find Equivalent

Fractions

Notice how the numerator (top number) was

multiplied by 6 and it gave us 6, and the

denominator (bottom number) was also

multiplied by the same number and it gave us

24. So, 1/4 is equivalent to 6/24.

The numerator (top number) was divided by 4 and

it gave us 1, and the denominator (bottom

number) was divided by the same number and it

gave us 2. Therefore, 4/8 is equivalent to 1/2.

Johnny ate 5/12 pieces of cake. Jessica wants to

eat the same amount as Johnny. Write a fraction

that is equivalent to 5/12 to show how much cake

Jessica ate.

** Remember, equivalent fractions have

different numbers.

** Also, remember that in order to find equivalent

fractions, you can multiply the numerator and

denominator by the same number.
