Find the multiples of each denominator (bottom number) for example the mutiples of 5 would be 5,10,15,20...

Find the Lowest Common Multiple of both fractions

Once both denominators have the same denominator remember whatever you did to the denomnator to make it hat number you have to do the same to the top

for example 5/20 4/5 (x4)

5/20 /20

5/20 16/20

4/5 = 16/20

5/8 (x?) = 15/24

it is 3! Congrats.

12/15 (x ?) = 48/60

14/20 (x ?) = 7/10

3/4 (x ?) = 75/100
