How to Find Equivalent Fractions

Equivalent fraction

in algebra , Fractions are the things which represent a part from whole. It divides a part from the whole thing. For example if we need to take only one part from 4 parts then we can refer it as ¼ or 1/4th part.Equivalent fractions means equal parts

A fraction is generally written in the form of part/whole.

Example:

3/9, 2/3, 56/78, 4/62 etc.

Equivalent Fraction Definition

Equivalent Fraction Definition are the fractions that have same value even though they are having different terms. For example 2/6 and 1/3 are having same values even though they are having different terms. Multiplying the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same (non-zero) number, the results of the new fraction is said to be equivalent to the original fraction.

Example:

1/4 = 2/8 = 4/16

These two fractions have the same value even though they are in different fractions.

How to Find Equivalent Fractions

The following algebra problems explain How to Find equivalent fractions

This can be made out by comparing two fractions. If they are of same values then they are said to be equivalent.

Example:

How to Find equivalent fractionsand write them down

1. 2/3 and 4/18

2/3 there is no common factor in numerator and denominator so we cannot go further.

4/18 = 2[2/9]

2/3 and 2/9 are having different values; they are not equivalent.

2. 16/20 and 20/25

16/20 = 4[4/5] = 4/5

20/25 = 5[4/5] = 4/5.

16/20 and 20/25 are having same values; so they are equivalent.

Solve Equivalent Fractions

1. Solve equivalent fractions 2/3, 4/6 and 16/24 and find out whichare equivalent?

2/3 = 1 x 2/ 1 x 3 = 1[2/3]

= 2/3

4/6 = 2 x 2/ 2 x 3 = 2[2/3]

= 2/3

16/24 = 4 x 4/ 4 x 6 = 4[4/6]

= 4/6

= 2 x 2/2 x 3 = 2[2/3]

= 2/3.

Therefore 2/3, 4/6 and 16/24 are equivalent.

2. Is these two figures equivalent

equivalent fractionsequivalent fractions example

Even though these figures are different in size they are having the same values:

The1/ 4th of figure is white in color and 3/ 4th part is black in color; and in the second figure 1/ 4th of the figure is white in color and 3/ 4th part is black in color. Since they are of equal value they are equivalent.

Equivalent Fractions Calculator

Equivalent Fractions Calculator ,we need to consider the following things they are

• Fraction values.

• Whether the numerator and denominator are divisible with the same number.

• The two fractions should have the same values.

By following above steps we need to solve problems by Equivalent Fractions Calculator.

Online Equivalent Fractions

The follwoing algebra answer solves the given equivalent fractions

The Online equivalent fractions refers to the fractions that are solved easily; even though they are mixed fractions, improper fractions, and proper fractions.

Online equivalent fractions are:

• Using mixed fractions:

4 [3/5] and 4 [6/10]

Since 3/5 and 6/10 are having same value they are equivalent.

• Using improper fractions:

16/12 and 8/6

Since 16/12 and 8/6 are having same value 4/3 they are equivalent.

• Using proper fractions:

1/5 and 12/60

Since 1/5 and 12/60 are having same value they are equivalent.

Equivalent Fraction Help

equivalent fractions problem

From the above figure we can figure out by Equvivalent fraction help that only 1/ 4th part is cut from one pie, and together 2/8 part is cut. So they are equivalent.

equivalent fractions answers

From the above figure out by Equvivalent fraction help that 1/ 4 of the pie is black in color and 1/ 4 of the pie is white in color. So both black and white are equivalent.From the above figure 1/ 4 of the pie is white in color and 3/ 4 of the pie is in black color, so that they are not equivalent.

rectangle example

The above rectangle is colored with two different colors, from that we can make out that they are equally divided.
