Definition: two fractions with the same value How do you find them? Multiply or divide by a “Giant One”. Example: x = One reason to use them: to add and subtract fractions. Example: A different reason to use them: to simplify fractions Example: Equivalent Fractions

Mixed Numbers Improper Fractions Easier to picture … Simplest Form Harder to picture the value of … Easier to work with How can you move from mixed numbers to improper fractions? Step 1: multiply the whole number by the denominator. Step 2: add that product to the numerator Step 3: place that sum over the given denominator. Example: 2 Step 1: 2x4=8 Step 2: 8+3=11 Step 3: How can you move from improper fractions to mixed numbers? Step 1: Divide the numerator by the denominator to get a whole number Step 2: Put the remainder over the denominator. Simplify. Example: __9 Step 1: 4/ 38 - 36 __9 = 9 Step 2: 4/ 38 - 36 2
