1.57 Equivalent Fractions

We can generate equivalent fractions of any given fraction by
  • Multiplying its numerator and denominator by the same number (other than 0) or
  • Dividing its numerator and denominator by their common factor (other than 1),
  • The two fractions are equivalent if the product of numerator of the first and denominator of the second is equal to the product of the denominator of the first and numerator of the second.
  • Example: 1/3 and 3/9
      These fractions are equivalent fractions because
    • the product of the numerator of the 1st and the denominator of the second is 1 x 9 = 9
    • the product of the numerator of the 2nd and the denominator of the first is 3 x 3 = 9
    • The product are equal

Such fractions are called equivalent fractions.
