    12/16 would do too, no? Or 24/32 or 48/64?

    I 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.

    ok - lets go back to where I started. first can you spot what common factor goes into both 6 and 8?

    6 and 8 can both be divided by 2

    ok, so we can now simplify the fraction as follows: |dw:1328228607940:dw| by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 2.

    so you understand how we simplified 6/8 to 3/4?

    ok, now a fraction remains the same if you multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the same value.

    ok so how do u have the anser for 5/6

  25. asnaseer

    so, 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.

    you should now be able to apply the same principal to your second question.

    just apply what you have learnt above to each one.

    ok thnaks

    e.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.

    alternatively, try simplifying each of them to see if you end up with 1/2
