SOURCE: How to convert fractions into equivalent fractions...

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.

SOURCE: write two fractions that are equivalent to each fraction given. 3/15

1/5, 2/10

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.

That depends on the problem.

A mixed number is a number composed of an integer part and a proper fraction (fraction where the numerator is less than the denominator

A measure gives you 1 foot and 1/ 2 foot. Instead of writing 1.5 feet some people write 1 1/2. If you don't like mixed number you can convert them into improper fractions (fraction where the numerator is greater than the denominator.

1 1/2=1+1/2=(1*2+1)2=3/2

If you use them in a subtraction you should be careful because

7- 5 1/2=7-(5+1/2)=7-5 -1/2=2-1/2=(2*2-1)/2=3/2

You can multiply them, divide them, but any other operation quickly becomes ridiculously complicated. Some people like to use them. I don't much care for them.

In multiplication and division the general rule is to convert every number into its (reduced) improper fraction equivalent and then operate, using the rules for manipulating fractions.

Any fraction where you multiply 4/9 top and bottom by the same number eg 8/18

You convert the fractions so they have the same denominator (bottom number) then subtract the numerators (top numbers). 7/2 is the same as 28/8 (8 divided by 2 = 4. 4 times 7 = 28, so the equivalent fraction is 28/8. You can check by dividing 8 into 28 = 3 1/2 = 7/2. So, 3/8 - 28/8 = negative 25/8 or 3 1/8.

It is simple. 36=4x9 and 63=7x9. The number 9 is a common factor in both numbers. You can simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by 9.

36/63=(4x9)/(7x9). You can rewrite the fraction as (4/7)*(9/9)=4/7 because 9/9=1.

The reduced fraction equivalent to 36/63 is 4/7. Since 7 and 4 have no common divisor you cannot reduce the fraction further.

Say you have a repeating decimal number 0.714285 714285 714285 etc. You identify the period (the repeating part) and in this case it is 714285.

You count the number of decimal places in the period: here it is 6. Your equivalent fraction is

Fraction= period/(99...9) where the number of 9's in the denominator is equal to the number of decimal places in the period. For this case, that is 6.

Thus

0.714285 714285 714285 etc.= 714285 / 999999

Reduce the fraction and you will find 5/7

This technique works for a repeating decimal number where the period starts just after the decimal mark.

If the periodic part does not start right after the decimal mark there are modifications to be made.
