Checking whether fractions are equivalentLetβs take an example Check whether π/π, πππ/πππ 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 π/π, ππ/πππ 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/π, ππ/ππ 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.
