ok five equvilant fractions for 2 out of 3

- sandra

ok so 2 out of 3 can be written as 2/3

- sandra

all you have to do is multiply both the top and bottom by 5 different numbers

- sandra

since if you multiple both the top and bottom, the actual fraction will be the same (equivalent)

- sandra

so for example you can multiple 2/3 * 2/2, and you will get 4/6

- sandra

which is equivalent to 2/3

- anonymous

ok

- sandra

so go ahead and do it for 2-6

- sandra

and you will have five equivalent fractions

- anonymous

but i dont know how to times fractions

- sandra

oh ok. well multiplying fractions is easy enough.

- sandra

all you do is multiply straight across both the top and bottom

- sandra

so 2/3 * 2/2 = 2*2/3*2 = 4/6

- sandra

2/3 * 3/3 = (2 x 3)/(3 x 3) = 6/9

- sandra

2/3 x 4/4 = (2 x 4)/ (3 x 4) = 8/12

- sandra

now 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

- anonymous

can you please just give me the answer

- sandra

the reason 4/6, 6/9, and 8/12 are equivalent fractions, are because in each case you really just multiplied by 1

- sandra

well, I gave you the first three equivalent fractions

- sandra

4/6, 6/9, and 8/12

- sandra

so what is 2/3 x 5/5?

- sandra

it's (2 x 5)/ ( 3 x 5)

- sandra

so 10/15

- sandra

now if you do 2/3 x 6/6 , you will have the answer

- anonymous

its basically all of the fractions that when u reduce gives you 2/3 once its completely reduced to its simplest form

- anonymous

i was tryen to type that but my mouse was stuck

- sandra

it's k, sometimes you just have to refresh (not sure why)

- sandra

so I gave you four equivalent fractions

- anonymous

12/18 is the answer

- sandra

correct =)

- sandra

so you now have five equivalent fractions

- anonymous

yea see its easy

- sandra
