To find an equivalent fraction to a certain fraction. Multiply or divide both denominator and numerator by a fraction with same denominator and numerator.
for example;
(1/6) x (2/2) = 2/12
(1/6) x (3/3) = 3/18
And so on...**Know that (2/2) = (3/3) = 1 so when you multiply (1/6) by any of them or similar to them it is like doing nothing to it..just finding equivalent of it.
I hope you got it !? If any thing unclear plz feel free to comment on my answer.

No fraction listed here is equal to 1/6. You can confirm this by dividing the fractions starting with 1/6. If you divide 1/6 you will get 0.17 and then divide the rest to see whether they are equal to 0.17. 4/9= 0.44, ?=0.5, ?=0.25, 5/7= 0.7 and 3/8= 0.38. Therefore, there is no number that is equal to 1/6.
