Review equivalent fractions with fraction models and number lines, and try some practice problems.
Fractions are equivalent if they are equal or represent the same amount.
Let's look at an example.
First, we can draw .
Now, let's divide the same whole into eighths.
How can we shade the whole to show a fraction that is equivalent to ?
We shaded of the sections.
Let's visualize another equivalent fraction using a number line.
Numbers are equivalent when they are located at the same point on the number line.
First, we can show on a number line:
Now, let's divide our number line into tenths and see what fraction is located at the same point as .
and are located at the same point on the number line.
