31 2 3 6 What are equivalent fractions? Equivalent fractions are fractions with the same value.Sometimes it is very difficult to find equivalent fractions because the digits used in the fractions are completely different.Can you seehow all the digitsare different?123is the same as6
4Shapes can be used to show two or more fractions are equivalent. 13How can we show;is equivalent to?261326What do you notice?Although the digits are different the amount of shaded area is the same for both fractions.
