## How To Find The Equivalent Fractions

It’s no secret that in the US, until the last few years, math was always about memorizing procedures and algorithms. If you really memorized math problems, this worked for you. It worked for me, I got an A in math for 4th grade. As a student, it was painful for me when something went wrong. I went to one school in 3rd grade and moved to another school in 4th grade. I missed something about factions when I moved… but I didn’t know what it was. Suddenly I needed to add and subtract fractions (I had never seen them written that way), which was a no-brainer for me. I still remember thinking fractions was bad, the problems were full of red marks and I couldn’t believe I was bad at math. The assignments (and tears) piled up and I got a “D”. It’s rice.

## For Equivalent Fractions The Fraction Notation Shows The Number Of…

It makes sense to me when I look back and think about what I was missing. I never checked for an equivalent fraction. I didn’t know that something is not a whole number, and that two fractions can be the same number. How can two numbers be the same? 7 7… 21 was 21. How can 1/2 be the same number as 4/8?

So when I teamed up with my 4th grade teacher at my school, we decided to spend a really long time on equivalents. And we decided to make it as real-world as possible. So, knowing that they had some experience with equivalent fractions in 3rd grade, we wrote a survey… and asked them to use tools to show what they thought.

Then we set them free with measuring cups and sand, fraction tiles, fraction towers, chopsticks, and pie charts, asking what they could observe.

#### Learning Task 3:use The Illustrations To Find Equivalent Fraction. Write The Fraction Inside The Box.

It was really cool. As we walked around, we asked them what they saw. Without saying a word about it, they began to understand the relationship between the two numbers!

We discussed what is equal and what is not equal. We added a little more to the diagram and learned how to use multiplication or division to solve inequalities without tools.

There were definitely some misconceptions in the room where we worked. They were assigned and then we continued the week with the rest of the chapter. I will be sharing more tutorials soon. We use cookies. By using our site, you agree to our cookie policy. Cookie settings

Two fractions are equivalent if they have the same value. Knowing how to convert a fraction to an equivalent is a necessary math skill from basic algebra to advanced calculus. This article discusses several ways to calculate equivalent fractions.

To find equivalent fractions, multiply or divide the sum and difference by any number if it is above and below. If you divide the original fraction, the numerator and denominator must contain whole numbers for the result to be correct. Use cross multiplication to check the results. Multiply the first fraction by the second fraction, then multiply the first fraction by the second fraction. If 2 answers are the same, the fractions are equal. If you need to learn how to factor variables, keep reading! Here you will find helpful information on what an equivalent fraction is and how to find equivalent fractions.

We also have an equivalent fraction worksheet to practice and demonstrate your understanding of this concept.

## Write The Fraction For The Part That Is Shaded. Then Find The Equivalent Fraction.

At the bottom of this page are three printable resource pages that explain equivalent fractions in a little more detail.

It is important to know how to find equivalent fractions and add or subtract fractions with different names.

One half equals one half of the whole. If we divide a half into two equal parts, we get a quarter or a full 4 equal parts.

#### Ex 7.3, 6

Each half is divided into quarters (because two parts of 4 are shaded), so we have the equivalent part:

If we divide each half into three equal parts instead of 2, we get a total of 6 bars (the divisor) and 3 shaded bars (the numerator), which gives a fraction of three sixths.

Divide the same half by 4, 5, 6, etc. We can repeat this in parts:

### Find The Equivalent Fraction Of (6)/(11) Having (i) Denominater 77 (ii) Numerator 60

It also makes sense in context, for example if you score a 5 out of 10 or five out of ten on a spelling test, half of the answers will be correct and half will be incorrect.

If we divide one-third into two equal parts, we get a total of 6 shaded 6, so we have 4 shaded 6 instead of 2 shaded 3.

In other words, we have doubled the number of shadow parts (the ratio) and also doubled the number of common parts.

#### Ex 7.3, 5

Again, this can be repeated and two-thirds divided into any number of equal parts.

Each time a fraction is divided, both the numerator and denominator are multiplied by the divisor. This gives us an equivalent fraction.

In other words, if you multiply the sum and difference by the same number, you get the same (or equivalent) quotient.

### Equivalent Fractions Worksheet

And using the same logic, if you divide the sum and difference by the same number, you get an equivalent fraction.

We have established that if the numerator and denominator of a fraction are multiplied or divided by the same number, the equivalent fraction is obtained.

If you want to see all of this in a little more detail, click on the 3 pages below that will tell you everything you need to know about equivalent fractions.

### Equivalent Fraction Interactive Activity

Using tables of equivalent fractions is a great way to learn fractions facts and helps you visually understand exactly how many fractions are worth.

Here you can find a selection of Equivalent Fractions worksheets designed to help children practice equivalent fraction facts.

This is a basic learning step that your child should be confident about before they start learning to add and subtract different parts and fractions.
