How To: Understand equivalent fractions

Understand equivalent fractions

In this video the instructor teaches about equivalent fractions. When given a problem to determine if two fractions are equivalent fractions the first thing to do is write them in the lowest terms. A fraction is said to be in the lowest terms if the greatest common divisor of both numerator and denominator is one. So cancel the common factors in the numerator and the denominator till you arrive at the lowest form and finally compare them to determine if they are equivalent. An equivalent fraction of any fraction can be derived by multiplying both the numerator and the denominator of that fraction by a common number. This video shows how to determine if two given fractions are equivalent.
