How can i draw fraction strips to show that 2/5 is equal to 6/15

Line up a 5section strip alongside a 15section strip. Each one of the 5strip sections will be alongside three of the 15strip sections.
Two 1/5 strips will line up with six 1/15 strips. 
12/45

5/6=15/

line up together and shade 2 parts in for 2/5 and for 6/15 shade in 6 parts for 6/15

1/3 is equivalent to 4/12 also 2/5 hope that helped a little
