# Visualizing equivalent fractions review

Review equivalent fractions with fraction models and number lines, and try some practice problems.

## Equivalent fractions

Fractions are

**equivalent**if they are equal or represent the same amount.### Fraction model

Let's look at an example.

First, we can draw $\frac{1}{2}$ .

Now, let's divide the same whole into eighths.

How can we shade the whole to show a fraction that is equivalent to $\frac{1}{2}$ ?

We shaded $4$ of the $8$ sections.

So, $\frac{1}{2}}={\displaystyle \frac{4}{8}$ .

### Number line

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 $\frac{3}{5}$ on a number line:

Now, let's divide our number line into tenths and see what fraction is located at the same point as $\frac{3}{5}$ .

- if the top of the fraction (the numerator) is a larger the bottom(denominator) it called a greater than one fraction as in greater than one whole(14 votes)
- That's correct. If the numerator is the same as the denominator, it equals 1.

If the numerator is greater than the denominator, it is greater than 1.(16 votes)
