Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012/16 would do too, no? Or 24/32 or 48/64?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I don't think it helps the question asker if too many people jump in with multiple ways of solving something. I was /trying/ to teach lil rob first how to simplify a fraction and then how you can find other equivalent fractions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ok  lets go back to where I started. first can you spot what common factor goes into both 6 and 8?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.36 and 8 can both be divided by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ok, so we can now simplify the fraction as follows: dw:1328228607940:dw by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so you understand how we simplified 6/8 to 3/4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ok, now a fraction remains the same if you multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the same value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so how do u have the anser for 5/6

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so, for example, we can multiply both numerator and denominator by 10 to get:\[\frac{3}{4}=\frac{3*10}{4*10}=\frac{30}{40}\]so 6/8, 3/4 and 30/40 are ALL equivalent fractions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now wich is not the equivelent fraction to 1/2 a.2/4 b3/6 c5/8 d6/12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3just apply what you have learnt above to each one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3e.g.\[\frac{1}{2}=\frac{1*2}{2*2}=\frac{2}{4}\]so 2/4 is equivalent to 1/2 apply same process to each one and you should be able to work it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3alternatively, try simplifying each of them to see if you end up with 1/2
