Checking whether fractions are equivalentLet’s take an example Check whether 𝟏/𝟐, πŸπŸπŸ–/πŸπŸ“πŸ” are equivalent. To check, we make both fractions equal. 1/2 = 128/256 And then cross multiply 1/2 = 128/256 1 Γ— 256 = 128 Γ— 2 256 = 256 Since this is true 1/2, 128/256 are equivalent Check whether 𝟏/πŸ‘, πŸ—πŸ—/πŸπŸ—πŸ• are equivalent. To check, we make both fractions equal. 1/3 = 99/297 And then cross multiply 1/3 = 99/297 1 Γ— 297 = 99 Γ— 3 297 = 297 Since this is true 1/2, 99/297 are equivalent Check whether πŸ’/πŸ“, πŸπŸ–/πŸ‘πŸ“ are equivalent. To check, we make both fractions equal. 4/5 = 28/35 And then cross multiply 4/5 = 28/35 4 Γ— 35 = 28 Γ— 5 140 = 140 Since this is true. 4/5, 28/35 are equivalent.
