What are Equivalent Fractions?
Equivalent fractions are fractions which use different numbers in the numerator and denominator but represent the same proportion of a whole. Since a fraction implies division, they are any other division which equals the same decimal amount.
Example Equivalent Fractions
The most basic fraction most people think of is 1/2, which represents 50% or .5 in decimal. However, note you can also represent the number 1 as a fraction – namely, it can be 1/1.
And that’s not all. 1/1 is equivalent to any other fraction which divides to one… and they’re easy to calculate:
And the interesting part is you can now multiply all those equivalent fractions of 1/1 to find equivalent fractions for any other number!
