## 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!

## How to Use the Equivalent Fractions Tool

To find a long list of equivalent fractions, simply enter the **denominator** and **numerator** of your fraction in the **Fraction** box. Then, hit the List Equivalent Fractions button and the tool will start doing some math.

Once complete, the tool will list the fraction itself, its *reduced* or *simplest* form, then a number of equivalent fractions in the **Equivalent Fractions** box.
