Example 5 Write four more numbers in the following pattern: (−1)/3, (−2)/6, (−3)/9, (−4)/12
(−1)/3
(−2)/6
(−3)/9
(−4)/12
So, these are equivalent fractions of (−1)/3
Thus, 4 more numbers in the same pattern are equivalent fractions of (−1)/3
(−1)/3 × 5/5
(−1)/3 × 6/6
(−1)/3 × 7/7
(−1)/3 × 8/8
∴ 4 more numbers are (−𝟓)/𝟏𝟓, (−𝟔)/𝟏𝟖, (−𝟕)/𝟐𝟏, (−𝟖)/𝟐𝟒
