There are probably several ways to do this question.

This is the first one that came to mind. Is it easier to make 2/5 an equivalent in terms of 200 or is it easier to make 7/200 an equivalent in terms of 5. I don't like fractions or decimals, so let's go with the first one.

To make it easier to see, I'm going to re-write the equation

2 = x

--- -----

5 200

200/5 = 40 so we are multiplying 5 by 40 to get 200 in the denominator. So we have to multiply 2 by 40 in the numerator to get the equivalent fraction.

Now we have

2 80

--- = -----

5 200

Since 80/200 is equal to 2/5, we can now compare 80/200 with 7/200.

Back to the original question, 7/200 is less than 80/200.

Sorry for being so verbose. I just wanted to explain all my steps;)

Good luck,

Paul

If we have no pizza, and divided it between you and me, how much do we get? ZERO.

However, you want equivalent fractions to 0/2. To get an equivalent fraction, you multiply the numerator (the number on the top) and the denominator (the number on the bottom) by the same number.

So we can multiply the top and bottom by 2.

0 x 2 = 0

2 x 2 = 4

So an equivalent fraction would be 0/4.

Good luck.

Hi Anonymous,

You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing both top and bottom by the same amount, but only multiply or divide, never add or subtract, to get an equivalent fraction.

I've only shown the fraction part of your question as 1 is a whole number.

1/2 = 2/4, or 4/8, or 8/16 or 16/32 or 32/64 & so on.

Going the other way, dividing 2/4 by 2 will give 1/2.

But, only divide when the top and bottom would still be whole numbers, for instance you wouldn't use divide for odd number fractions, for example 1/3 or 3/5 etc.

Trust this helps, best regards Alan

Ratios are like fractions: to make an equivalent ratio you simply multiply both sides of the ratio by the same non-zero number. 1:2 is equivalent to 2:4 (both sides multiplied by 2). 10:12 is equivalent to 5:6 (both sides multiplied by 1/2).

A number with a periodic decimal representation cannot be equivalent to a fraction with denominator 10 (or a multiple of 10) except if the repeating decimals are zeros.

0.454545...=45/99=5/11

0.454545...=45/99=5/11

find the least common denominator between the original fraction into the new fraction.

example, 1/2 to 2/4 to 4/8 to 8/16.

example, 1/2 to 2/4 to 4/8 to 8/16.

Three was I know of... a fraction is recognized by a calculator...

if you want to put in the decimal equivalent as example..

one half is .5

or 1/2

and it will only display the decimal equivalent.

Then there is scientific notation EE

EG... .5 = 1/2 = 5.0 EE-1
