    ok five equvilant fractions for 2 out of 3

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

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

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

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

    which is equivalent to 2/3

    ok

  11. sandra

    so go ahead and do it for 2-6

  12. sandra

    and you will have five equivalent fractions

    but i dont know how to times fractions

    oh ok. well multiplying fractions is easy enough.

  15. sandra

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

  16. sandra
    • 5 years ago

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

  17. sandra

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

  18. sandra

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

    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

    can you please just give me the answer

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

    well, I gave you the first three equivalent fractions

  23. sandra
    • 5 years ago

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

  24. sandra

    so what is 2/3 x 5/5?

  25. sandra
    • 5 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

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

  26. sandra
    • 5 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    so 10/15

  27. sandra

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

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

  31. sandra

    so I gave you four equivalent fractions

  32. anonymous

    12/18 is the answer

    correct =)

  34. sandra

    so you now have five equivalent fractions
