• Why do fractions with different numbers equal each other, like 4/6 and 2/3?
• If you simplify 4/6 by dividing the numerator and denominator by 2, you will get 2/3.
• how to simplofy
• I used to be confused with simplifying fractions too! But here’s an something that helped me, to simplify... you really just divide! Do u know how to divide? I hope so! Cause you really just divide and yeah! Np!
• at your hexagon looked alot like a cube like shape
• It does look like a cube not a hexagon your right noahcald9700!
• Why do fractions with different numbers equal each other, like 4/6 and 2/3?
• Let's say we have two pies, one with 3 slices, and one with 6 slices.
You eat 2 slices of the first and 4 of the second.
If the slices on the second pie are half the size of the first pie, and you eat twice the pieces of the second pie, then you ate the same amount of the second pie as the first pie.

• hey im on agles what if you have a 120 angle what will that count as like acute,right, or obtuse. plz help. thanks
• It is a obtuse because an obtuse angle is more than 90 deegrees and a acute angle is less than 90 deegrees. I hope this helped! (I don't know how to spell deegrees.)
• Than how do you know what to divide or multiply, like 4/6=8/12, this is correct but why is it multiply 2?
• Can you multiply and divide fractions?
