1. 3/5 = x/15

find the common denominator which will be "15"

then, since you multiply the "5" by "3" to get "15", then you must multiply the top, numerator, by the same. Therefore: 3*3 = "9"

If you had: 4/5 to get a full set of 15 counters would be "12"counters...you would have to multiply the "4" by "3" as you did for the above.

I think this is what you are looking for?? If not, I appologize.
