Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's like this man. Say you have 1/2 of a pie. 50% of the pie. Imagine this... 1/2 of a pie. Now, multiply the amount of pies you have by 2. However, don't give yourself two WHOLE pies. You started with 1/2 of a pie. So the next by you give yourself must also only have half of it left. Therefore, you have 2 pies, each with half of them missing. Give yourself another pie if you want... with half of it gone. And another. And another. You'll notice something. Draw this on a sheet of paper if you want, some circles half filled in, however you want to graph it. For every whole circle (1), (1/2) of it is left. Even if you give yourself seemingly more pie (1/2 more), there was still 2 pies, now you have 1/2 + 1/2 1 out of 2 pies, 1/2 again. Make sense? So in a way, you have 2/4 of the total amount of pies. It makes sense if you draw it out (this is a weird way of explaining equivalent fractions lol).
