## Learn More About Equivalent Fractions

Equivalent fractions are fractions that look different, but they actually have the same value if you simplify them down. You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same whole number. Need some more explanation? See our examples below!**Multiplication**

You can multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number to get an equivalent fraction. Let’s take a look at how to make three equivalent fractions of

^{2}⁄

_{3}Through multiplication:

^{2}⁄_{3}×^{2}⁄_{2}=^{4}⁄_{6}^{2}⁄_{3}×^{3}⁄_{3}=^{6}⁄_{9}^{2}⁄_{3}×^{4}⁄_{4}=^{8}⁄_{12}

^{2}⁄

_{3}=

^{4}⁄

_{6}=

^{6}⁄

_{9}=

^{8}⁄

_{12}. These are all equivalent fractions!

**Division**

Now that you’ve seen how to find equivalent fractions by multiplication, you can now make equivalent fractions by division. Let’s divide

^{18}⁄

_{36}To get equivalent fractions:

^{6}⁄_{12}÷^{2}⁄_{2}=^{3}⁄_{6}^{6}⁄_{12}÷^{3}⁄_{3}=^{2}⁄_{4}^{6}⁄_{12}÷^{6}⁄_{6}=^{1}⁄_{2}

^{6}⁄

_{12}=

^{3}⁄

_{6}=

^{2}⁄

_{4}=

^{1}⁄

_{2}.

If you keep in mind that in order to work with equivalent fractions you must multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same whole number, you’ll be blazing through our equivalent fractions worksheets in no time!
