Chapter 7 Class 6 Fractions
Concept wise

Let’s take an example

### Check whether 1/2 , 128/256 are equivalent .

To check,

we make both fractions equal.

1/2 = 128/256

And then cross multiply

1 × 256 = 128 × 2

256 = 256

Since this is true

1/2, 128/256 are equivalent

### Check whether 1/ 3 , 99 /2 97 are equivalent.

To check,

we make both fractions equal.

1/3 = 99/297

And then cross multiply

1 × 297 = 99 × 3

297 = 297

Since this is true

1/2, 99/297 are equivalent

### Check whether 4 / 5 , 28 / 35 are equivalent.

To check,

we make both fractions equal.

4/5 = 28/35

And then cross multiply

4 × 35 = 28 × 5

140 = 140

Since this is true.

4/5, 28/35 are equivalent.

Checking whether fractions are equivalentLetβs take an example Check whether π/π, πππ/πππ 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, ππ/πππ 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, ππ/ππ 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.
