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.

WHAT GRACIAS
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
lil rob - do you understand how to do this now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
NOT REALLY HOW IN THE WORLD DO U GET 3/4 AND THE ANSWER
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
ok - lets go back to where I started. first can you spot what common factor goes into both 6 and 8?
anonymous
  • anonymous
NO HOW DO I FIND THE FACTOR
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
BTW: Typing in capital letters generally means you are shouting - which I assume you are not? :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
6 and 8 can both be divided by 2
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
ok, so we can now simplify the fraction as follows: |dw:1328228607940:dw| by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 2.

  • anonymous
so whats 5/6
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
where did 5/6 come from?
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats my second math problem
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
lets finish the first problem first :)
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
so you understand how we simplified 6/8 to 3/4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
ok, now a fraction remains the same if you multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the same value.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so how do u have the anser for 5/6
asnaseer
  • 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.
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
you should now be able to apply the same principal to your second question.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok now wich is not the equivelent fraction to 1/2 a.2/4 b3/6 c5/8 d6/12

c

  • asnaseer
just apply what you have learnt above to each one.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok thnaks
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
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.
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
alternatively, try simplifying each of them to see if you end up with 1/2
