copyright©amberpasillas2010 1 3 1 6 + Now find the equivalent fractions for 1/3 & 1/6. 6 6 x 1 = x 2 = Ask what do you multiply 3 by to get 6 and what do you multiply 6 by to get 6. 10 3

copyright©amberpasillas2010 1 3 1 6 + You are writing equivalent fractions, so fill in your Giant One. 6 6 x 1 = x 2 = x 1 = x 2 = 10 3

copyright©amberpasillas2010 1 3 1 6 + 6 6 x 1 = x 2 = x 1 = x 2 = 10 3 Now multiply across. 2 1

copyright©amberpasillas2010 4 5 1 3 + Ask yourself what you multiply the denominator by to get 15. 15 x 5 = x 3 = 11 2

copyright©amberpasillas2010 4 5 1 3 + Fill in your giant one. 15 x 5 = x 3 = x 5 = x 5 = 2 11

copyright©amberpasillas2010 4 5 1 3 + 15 x 5 = x 3 = x 5 = x 3 = 2 11 Multiply straight across. 12 5

copyright©amberpasillas2010 4 5 1 3 + 15 x 5 = x 3 = x 5 = x 3 = 2 11 12 5 Add the Numerators. Denominator stays the same. 17 15
