The best way to think about equivalent fractions is that they are fractions that have the same overall value. Equivalent fractions represent the same part of a whole. For example, if we cut a pie exactly down the middle, into two equally sized pieces, one piece is the same as one half of the pie. And if another pie (the same size) is cut into 4 equal pieces, then two pieces of that pie represent the same amount of pie that 1/2 did. So we can say that 1/2 is equivalent (or equal) to 2/4. Don’t let equivalent fractions confuse you! Take a look at the four circles above. And yes grasshopper, 2/4 is an equivalent fraction for 4/8 too. As you already know, we are nuts about rules.

Here’s the Rule… What this Rule says is that two fractions are equivalent (equal) only if the product of the numerator (a) of the first fraction and the denominator (d) of the other fraction is equal to the product of the denominator (b) of the first fraction and the numerator (c) of the other fraction.

Matching Equivalent Fraction. Equivalent Fractions. Equivalent Fractions. Equivalent Fractions have the same value, even though they may look different. These fractions are really the same: Why are they the same? Because when you multiply or divide both the top and bottom by the same number, the fraction keeps it's value. The rule to remember is: "Change the bottom using multiply or divide, And the same to the top must be applied" So, here is why those fractions are really the same: And visually it looks like this: Dividing Here are some more equivalent fractions, this time by dividing: Choose the number you divide by carefully, so that the results (both top and bottom) stay whole numbers.

If we keep dividing until we can't go any further, then we have simplified the fraction (made it as simple as possible). You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing both top and bottom by the same amount.
