If the numerator and the denominator of a proper fraction are increased by the same amount, is the new fraction greater than, equal to, or less than the original fraction?
Is this correct...
it would be equal to because you are increasing both the numerator and the denominator by the same amount. for example: 3/5=3(2)/5(2)=6/10 which is equal to 3/5....is that right? or would I add instead which would make it greater to?

Your first answer is right.
it would be equal to because you are increasing both the numerator and the denominator by the same amount. for example: 3/5=3(2)/5(2)=6/10 which is equal to 3/5
