Now that we have learnt fractions in the previous chapter, let us see the next topic - equivalent fractions, with few activities. In this type, when both the numerator and the denominator are multiplied by the same number, the result will be equivalent to the original one.
Now let us do the learning online. For example, let us consider the math fraction 1/2. Suppose we multiply both the numerator and denominator by 3, then we get 3/6.
Now, this can be reduced to 1/2 (which is the original one).
This rule can also be applied while learning division also. When the numerator and the denominator are divided by the same number, it may also result in equivalent fraction. This can also be called as simplifying fraction in mathematics.
Let us consider 2/4. When we divide both the numerator and denominator by 2, we get 1/2.
Learning equivalent fractions online with activities for children is made easier here.
