Equivalent fractions are fractions that represent the same part of the whole.
To find equivalent fractions, we must multiply the numerator and denominator by the same nonzero natural number.
Example: Get Fractions Equivalent to Fraction .
So the fractions are some of the fractions equivalent to .
A fraction equivalent to , in smaller terms, is . The fraction was obtained by dividing both terms of the fraction by the common factor 3. We say that the fraction is a simplified fraction of .
The fraction cannot be simplified, so it's called irreducible fraction. The fraction cannot be simplified because 3 and 4 have no common factor.Next: Fractional Numbers
