Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hint: we have: \[\begin{gathered}  \frac{5}{{12}} =  \frac{{25}}{{60}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\  \frac{2}{5} =  \frac{{24}}{{60}} \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we can write this: \[\begin{gathered} \frac{3}{5} = \frac{{27}}{{45}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \frac{2}{9} = \frac{{10}}{{45}} \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for example, for 3/5, we have: 45/5 = 9, then 9*3=27, therefore we can write: \[\frac{3}{5} = \frac{{27}}{{45}}\] similarly for 2/9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we can write this: \[\begin{gathered}  \frac{5}{8} =  \frac{{1575}}{{2520}},\quad  \frac{7}{9} =  \frac{{1960}}{{2520}}, \hfill \\ \hfill \\  \frac{4}{5} =  \frac{{2016}}{{2520}},\quad  \frac{3}{7} =  \frac{{1080}}{{2520}} \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]
