EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS
• The more we change, the more we stay the same.

Equivalent fractions are fractions that might
look different but are really equal in their value

Lets begin with the most famous fraction of all.
½

this square, ½ is still shaded.
32 1 64 2

11
this square, ½ is still shaded.
64 1 128 2

12
Even though the square has been further divided,
½ of the square is still shaded.
64 1 128 2

13
½ is said to be in LOWEST TERMS because this is
the simplest way to describe the fraction.

This is also the simplest way to show that ½ of

You can check to see that all of these fractions
are EQUAL by converting to decimals.

Equivalent fractions have some unique properties.
19
If the numerators and denominators differ by the
same FACTOR, the two fractions are equal.

Another unique property of equivalent fractions
has to do with their cross products.

23
Another unique property of equivalent fractions
has to do with their cross products.

24
If the cross products are equal, then the
fractions are equal.

25
This property is true for any pair of equivalent
fractions.
