## How do you find an equivalent fraction?

**Equivalent fractions**are

**fractions**that look different but show exactly the same amount. You can make

**equivalent fractions**by multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number. You can simplify

**fractions**by dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number.

2

## How do you work out the equivalent fractions?

**Summary:**

- You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing both top and bottom by the same amount.
- You only multiply or divide, never add or subtract, to get an equivalent fraction.
- Only divide when the top and bottom stay as whole numbers.

## What is a fraction walls?

**Fraction Wall**. Some

**fraction walls**include a vertical slider that can be used to directly compare

**fractions**from different rows. A

**fraction wall**is a very visual and concrete way to teach

**fraction**concepts such as comparing

**fractions**, equivalent

**fractions**, and common denominators.

## What is equal to?

Any fraction with the same numerator and denominator is

**equal to**one. The fractions below are all**equal to**1. The key idea is to multiply by a fraction**equal to**1.5

## How do you know if a fraction is equivalent?

A simple way to look at how to check for

**equivalent fractions**is to do what is called “cross-multiply”, which means multiple the numerator of one**fraction**by the denominator of the other**fraction**. Then do the same thing in reverse. Now compare the two answers to**see if**they are equal.6

## What is the meaning of equivalent expressions?

**Equivalent**expressions are expressions that are the same, even though they may look a little different. If you plug in the same variable value into

**equivalent**expressions, they will each give you the same value when you simplify. Learn more about

**equivalent expression**by watching this tutorial!

## What fraction is equal to 1 2?

The numerator is the part of a

**fraction**above the dividing bar.**Equivalent fractions**have different numerators and denominators, but the same value. If you multiply or divide any**fraction**by a fractional form of**1**(i.e.:**2**/**2**, 3/3, 4/4), the new**fraction**will be**equivalent**to the original**fraction**.8

## What is equivalent to 3 4 cup?

Cups

Cups | Tablespoons | Fluid Ounces |
---|---|---|

2/3 cup | 10 tbsp. + 2 tsp. | 5 1/3 fluid ounces |

3/4 cup | 12 tablespoons | 6 fluid ounces |

7/8 cup | 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp. | 7 fluid ounces |

1 cup | 16 tablespoons | 8 fluid oz. (1/2 pint) |

## What is the same as 1 2?

If a pie is cut into

**two**pieces, each piece is also**one**-half of the pie. We say that**1**/**2**is equivalent to**2**/4. Fractions are determined to be equivalent by multiplying the numerator and denominator of**one**fraction by the**same**number. This number should be such that the numerators will be equal after the multiplication.10

## What are the fractions that are less than 1 2?

• Larger

**than 1**/**2**: 5/8, 3/4,**2**/3, 4/7. For those**smaller than 1**/**2**,**2**/5 is larger**than 1**/4 (numerators three**less than**denominators),**1**/3 is larger**than 1**/4 (same numerator), and**2**/5 is larger**than 1**/3 (compare using equivalent**fractions**6/15 and 5/15).11

## Which is more 1 2 or 7 8?

The smaller denominator will give a

**larger**fraction. Another method for comparing is to think of the fractions. In this example it is obvious that**/**^{1}_{3}is smaller than**/**^{7}**. For**_{8}**one**thing,**/**^{1}_{3}is smaller than**/**^{1}**and**_{2}**/**^{7}**is**_{8}**larger**than**/**^{1}**.**_{2}12

## What is less than 1?

Greater

**than**and**less than**. On the number line the negative numbers are left of the zero. –5 is**less than**4, because –5 lies to the left of 4 on the number line. –**1**is greater**than**–3, because –**1**lies to the right of –3 on the number line.13

## Is less than?

Greater

**than**and**less than**symbols can be used to compare numbers and expressions. The**less than**symbol is <. Two other comparison symbols are ≥ (greater**than**or equal to) and ≤ (**less than**or equal to).14

## How do you write less than?

To understand which symbol to

**write**when comparing two values, think of the hungry alligator. The alligator's mouth always opens towards the larger value so that it can eat as much as possible. If the mouth opens to the left (>), such as 5 > 4, we read the statement as a greater**than**.15

## Which one is less than?

Symbol ">" means "greater

**than**"; symbol "<" means "**less than**". For example, 2 < 5, 5 > 2. To remember which is which, observe that both symbols have**one**pointed side where there is just**one**end, and**one**split side with 2 ends.16

## What is the less than sign?

The

**less**-**than sign**is a mathematical**symbol**that denotes an inequality between two values. In typical mathematical usage, the**less**-**than sign**is typically placed between the two values being compared and signals that the first number is**less than**the second number.17

## What is the sign for less than?

All The Symbols

Symbol | Words | Example Use |
---|---|---|

> | greater than | 5 > 2 |

< | less than | 7 < 9 |

≥ | greater than or equal to | marbles ≥ 1 |

≤ | less than or equal to | dogs ≤ 3 |

18

## Which one is bigger or?

Negative Integers

Symbol | Meanings | Example in Symbols |
---|---|---|

> | Greater Than More Than Bigger Than Larger Than | -4 > -7 |

< | Less Than Fewer Than Smaller Than | -7 < -4 |

= | Equal To Same As | -7 = -7 |

19

## What is the definition of less than?

Smaller. The symbol <

**means less than**(the symbol >**means**greater**than**). Example: 4 < 9 shows that 4 is**less than**9.20

## What is the less than sign look like?

When you see this

**sign**, remember that <**looks like**L and means "**less than**". The other**symbol**, "greater**than**"**does**not**look like**the letter L, therefore it cannot be "**less than**" and it's easier to remember.
