How Do You Find Equivalent Fractions?

Answer

To find out if you have equivalent fractions you will want to break them down to the simplest form. With the fractions 3/4 and 9/12 you can see that the 3/4 is in simplest form since it can not be broken down any more. 9/12 can be broken down since there is a common multiple between the two. The common multiple is 3. 3 goes into 9 a total of 3 times. 3 goes into 12 a total of 4 times. This creates the fraction 3/4. This means the two fractions are equivalent.
