Equivalent Fractions Equivalent Fractions name the same amount but have different numerators and denominators. They are sometimes called equal fractions. 1 2 1 1 = 4 2 4 2 1 4

Equivalent Fractions Identity Property states that any number multiplied by one equals itself This is useful to know so you can find a common denominator for adding and subtracting fractions.

Equivalent Fractions The Giant One is used to find equivalent fractions. It is used to reduce or simplify fractions. The giant one works because of the Identity Property.

Equivalent Fractions To find equivalent fractions multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number. 1 3 3 = 3 3 9 GIANT ONE

Equivalent Fractions Find 4 equivalent fractions for the fraction

Equivalent Fractions Find 4 equivalent fractions for the fraction

To Put Fractions in Simplest Form:
Find the greatest common factor of the numerator and the denominator and divide both the numerator and the denominator by that number. 12 6 2 ÷ = 18 6 3

Simplest Form When the only common factor of the numerator and the denominator is 1, the fraction is in simplest form. 3 1 3 ÷ = 4 1 4
