ShayLea said that if you multiply the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same number,you get an equivalent fraction. Is this true? Why or why not?
Me and my dad do not know. Please send answer tonight!!!
Let's try it.
1/2 * 2 = 2/4
4/5 * 3 = 12/15
9/10 * 5 = 45/50
Yep -- they are all equivalents.
Here are some links on multiplying fractions. It can be fun!
