how do you find equivelent fractions

Equivalent fractions are fractions that may look different, but are equal to each other. Two equivalent fractions may have a different numerator and a different denominator.

a/b=c/d

to find equivelent fractions you cross multiply them
for exmple:
5/15= 2/6
5x6=30
2x15=30

30=30

multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number will give you an equivalent fraction

e.g. 3/8
3/8*(5/5) = 15/40
3/8*(3/3) = 9/24

3/8, 15/40, 9/24 etc are all equivalent fractions
