Find 3 equivalent fractions for 4/12.

One is 1/3.
What else can you think of? 
Well I thought 2/4 was one.

No. 2/4 is not equivalent to 4/12.
Do you see how Writeacher got 1/3 from 4/12?
4 divided by 4 = 1
12 divided by 4 = 3
Let's try another.
4/12 = 2/6
Do you see how I got that? 
Yes you divide by 2.But I need 1 more.

What happens if you multiply the numerator and denominator by 2?
