Equivalent Fractions

What are equivalent fractions? The equivalent fractions definition is that Equivalent fractions are fractions that are the same value or size but have different numbers in the numerators and denominators. 25423_SEO-Line-21.svg

How to Generate Equivalent Fractions Using Multiplication

Mathematically, we can show how to generate, or create, equivalent fractions through a multiplication expression.

In this formula, the a over b represents our fraction. We use the n to stand for the number we are going to multiply both the numerator and denominator by. The equal sign shows the two sides of this expression are equivalent.

Equivalent Fractions Examples

One-half and two-fourths are an example of equivalent fractions. 25423_SEO-Line-19.svg

In one half, the whole is divided into two larger parts and one of the halves is shaded in. To make two-fourths, we would multiply the numerator and denominator by two. The whole is now grouped into four parts and two parts are shaded in. The size of these parts differs, but the size of the whole remains the same and therefore so does the value of the fraction.

Transcript Generate Equivalent Fractions

“B(....) TWO-THIRDS!” It’s fraction night down at the bingo hall and Axel and Tank are excited to try to win the night’s top prize… which is a trip for two to Submersive Studios! In order to be the first to fill their bingo card, they need to find… Equivalent Fractions. Equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value but have different numbers in the numerators and denominators. They are created by breaking the whole into smaller parts and having a greater number of pieces. We increase the number of parts in the fraction by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same factor. Mathematically, we can show how to generate, or create, equivalent fractions through a multiplication expression. In this formula, the over represents our fraction. We use the to stand for the NUMBER we are going to multiply both the numerator and denominator by. The equal sign shows the two sides of this expression are equivalent. One-half and two-fourths are an example of equivalent fractions. In one half, the whole is divided into two larger parts and one of the halves is shaded in. To make two-fourths, we would multiply the numerator and denominator by two. Two times two equals four(…)so the whole is now grouped into four parts… and one times two equals two, so there are now two parts shaded in. We could continue generating fractions equal to one-half by multiplying the numerator and denominator by other factors. The size of these parts differs, but the size of the whole remains the SAME(…)and therefore so does the value of the fraction. The next fraction called out is three-fourths. To find an equivalent fraction on his card, Axel is going to multiply the numerator and denominator by three. In the denominator, we have four times three, which makes twelve... Nine-twelfths is equivalent to three-fourths. Tank decides to multiply the fraction by sixs. Four times six equals twenty-four and three times six is eighteen. Three-fourths is also equivalent to eighteen twenty-fourths. Five-sixths is the next fraction called. Axel is going to make an equivalent fraction by multiplying the numerator and denominator by five. What is the equivalent fraction? Twenty-five thirtieths. Tank decides to multiply the numerator and denominator by eight. What equivalent fraction did he make? Forty, forty-eighths. These aren’t the only fractions that would be equivalent. In the comment section, share other fractions that are also equivalent to five-sixths and what you multiplied the numerator and denominator by it to make them. “G (...) FOUR-FIFTHS” While Axel and Tank look for an equivalent fraction on their card, let’s review. Remember… Equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value but have different numbers in the numerators and denominators. They are created by breaking the whole into smaller parts and having a greater number of pieces. We increase the number of parts in the fraction by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same factor. Mathematically, we can show how to generate, or create, equivalent fractions through a multiplication expression. "Woooooooah! I THINK I HAVE IT!" [Woman's voice] "BINGO!" "GRANDMA?!"
