Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok five equvilant fractions for 2 out of 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so 2 out of 3 can be written as 2/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all you have to do is multiply both the top and bottom by 5 different numbers

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since if you multiple both the top and bottom, the actual fraction will be the same (equivalent)

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for example you can multiple 2/3 * 2/2, and you will get 4/6

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is equivalent to 2/3

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so go ahead and do it for 26

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and you will have five equivalent fractions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but i dont know how to times fractions

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok. well multiplying fractions is easy enough.

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all you do is multiply straight across both the top and bottom

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2/3 * 2/2 = 2*2/3*2 = 4/6

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02/3 * 3/3 = (2 x 3)/(3 x 3) = 6/9

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02/3 x 4/4 = (2 x 4)/ (3 x 4) = 8/12

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now if you wanted to multiply (this is just for example/practice) 2/3 x 3/4, that would again be multiplying the top x top / bottom x bottom, so (2 x 3)/ (3 x 4) = 6/12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you please just give me the answer

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the reason 4/6, 6/9, and 8/12 are equivalent fractions, are because in each case you really just multiplied by 1

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, I gave you the first three equivalent fractions

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now if you do 2/3 x 6/6 , you will have the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its basically all of the fractions that when u reduce gives you 2/3 once its completely reduced to its simplest form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's k, sometimes you just have to refresh (not sure why)

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I gave you four equivalent fractions

sandra

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you now have five equivalent fractions
