Equivalent Fraction Examples

Question 1

Check whether 4/5 and 12/15 are Equivalent Fractions ?




Explanation

On Cross-multiplying, 4/5 and 12/15

we get,

4 x 15 = 60

and

12 x 5 = 60

Since, the products are same

Hence, 4/5 and 12/15 are Equivalent Fractions.

 

Question 2

Check whether 3/4 and 9/16 are Equivalent Fractions ?

Explanation

On Cross-multiplying, 3/4 and 9/16

We get,

3 x 16 = 48

and

9 x 4 = 36

Since, the products are not same

Hence, 3/4 and 9/16 are not Equivalent Fractions.




Question 3

Check whether 4/3 and 8/9 are Equivalent Fractions ?

Explanation

Cross multiplying 4/3 and 8/9

We get,

4 x 9 = 36

and

8 x 3 = 24

Since, the products are not same

Hence, 4/3 and 8/9 are not Equivalent Fractions.

Question 5

Check whether 15/24 and 3/4 are Equivalent Fractions ?

Explanation

Cross multiplying 15/24 and 3/4

We get,

15 x 4 = 60

and

3 x 24 = 72

Since, the products are not same

Hence, 15/24 and 3/4 are not Equivalent Fractions.

 

Question 6

Check whether 2/3 and 6/9 are Equivalent Fractions ?

Explanation

Cross multiplying 2/3 and 6/9
