**Equivalent Fractions**

**Use the model to write an equivalent fraction.**

Question 1.

\(\frac{4}{6}=\frac{2}{3}\)

Explanation:

The first image has 4 parts shaded out of 6 parts. Divide 8/10 with 2. You will get 2/3. That means 2 parts are shaded out of 3 parts.

Question 2.

\(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{□}{□}\)

Answer: \(\frac{3}{4}\) = \(\frac{6}{8}\)

Explanation:

The first image has 3 parts shaded out of 4 parts. Multiply 8/10 with 2. You will get 6/8. That means 6 parts are shaded out of 8 parts.

**Tell whether the fractions are equivalent. Write = or ≠.**

Question 3.

\(\frac{8}{10}\) _____ \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Answer: \(\frac{8}{10}\) = \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Explanation:

Multiply the numerator and denominator of 4/5 with 2.

8/10 = (2/2) × (4/5)

= 8/10

So, 8/10 = 4/5.

Question 4.

\(\frac{1}{2}\) _____ \(\frac{7}{12}\)

Answer: \(\frac{1}{2}\) ≠ \(\frac{7}{12}\)

Explanation:

Multiply the numerator and denominator of 1/2 with 6

1/2 = (6/6) x (1/2)

= (6/12)

So, 1/2 ≠ 7/12

Question 5.

\(\frac{3}{4}\) _____ \(\frac{8}{12}\)

Answer: \(\frac{3}{4}\) ≠ \(\frac{8}{12}\)

Explanation:

Multiply the numerator and denominator of 3/4 with 3.

3/4 = (3/3) × (3/4)

= (9/12)

So, 3/4 ≠ 8/12

Question 6.

\(\frac{2}{3}\) _____ \(\frac{4}{6}\)

Answer: \(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{4}{6}\)

Explanation:

Multiply the numerator and denominator of 2/3 with 2.

2/3 = (2/2) × (2/3)

= 4/6

So, 2/3 = 4/6.

Question 7.

\(\frac{5}{8}\) _____ \(\frac{4}{10}\)

Answer: \(\frac{5}{8}\) ≠ \(\frac{4}{10}\)

Explanation:

Multiply the numerator and denominator of 5/8 with 2

5 / 8 =(2/2) x (5/ 8)

= (10/16)

So, 5/8 ≠ 4/10

Question 8.

\(\frac{2}{6}\) _____ \(\frac{4}{12}\)

Answer:

Question 9.

\(\frac{20}{100}\) _____ \(\frac{1}{5}\)

Answer: \(\frac{20}{100}\) = \(\frac{1}{5}\)

Explanation:

Cross Multiply the 20/100 with 20/20

20/100 = (20/20) x (20/100)

= (1/5)

So, 20/100 = 1/5.

Question 10.

\(\frac{5}{8}\) _____ \(\frac{9}{10}\)

Answer: \(\frac{5}{8}\) ≠ \(\frac{9}{10}\)

Explanation:

Multiply the numerator and denominator of 5/8 with 2

5/8 = (2/2) x (5/8)

= 10/16

So, 5/8 ≠ 9/10

Question 11.

Jamal finished \(\frac{5}{6}\) of his homework. Margaret finished \(\frac{3}{4}\) of her homework, and Steve finished \(\frac{10}{12}\) of his homework. Which two students finished the same amount of homework?

_________

Answer: Jamal and Steve

Explanation:

As per the given data,

Jamal finished work = 5 /6 of his homework

Margaret finished work = 3 /4th of her homework

Steve finished work = 10/12 of his homework

Multiply the numerator and denominator of 5/6 with 2

Then, (2/2) x (5/6) = 10/12

Then, Jamal and Steve finished the same amount of homework.

Question 12.

Sophia’s vegetable garden is divided into 12 equal sections. She plants carrots in 8 of the sections. Write two fractions that are equivalent to the part of Sophia’s garden that is planted with carrots.

Type below:

_________

Answer: 2/3 and 4/6

Explanation:

As per the given data,

Sophia’s vegetable garden is divided into 12 equal sections

She plants carrots in 8 of the sections out of 12 sections = 8/12

By simplifying the 8/12, we will get 4/6

Again simplify the 4 /6 by dividing method, you will get 2 /3

2/3 = (2/2) x (2/3)

= 4/6

Then, the equivalent fractions are 2/3, 4 /6

Question 1.

A rectangle is divided into 8 equal parts. Two parts are shaded. Which fraction is equivalent to the shaded area of the rectangle?

Options:

a. \(\frac{1}{4}\)

b. \(\frac{1}{3}\)

c. \(\frac{2}{6}\)

d. \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Answer: \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Explanation:

As per the given data,

A rectangle is divided into 8 equal parts

Two parts are shaded

Then, the shaded area of rectangle = 2/8

By simplifying the 2/8, you will get 1/4

So, the shaded area of rectangle = 1/4

Thus the correct answer is option a.

Question 2.

Jeff uses 3 fifth-size strips to model \(\frac{3}{5}\). He wants to use tenth-size strips to model an equivalent fraction. How many tenth-size strips will he need?

Options:

a. 10

b. 6

c. 5

d. 3

Answer: 6

Explanation:

From the given data,

Jeff uses 3 fifth –size strips to model = 3 / 5 size strips

If he wants to use tenth – size strips to an equivalent fraction = 1 / 10 size strips

The number of strips = x

(1/10) x = 3/5

x = 30/5

then, the required number of tenth size trips = 6

Thus the correct answer is option b.

Question 3.

Cassidy places 40 stamps on each of 8 album pages. How many stamps does she place in all?

Options:

a. 300

b. 320

c. 360

d. 380

Answer: 320

Explanation:

d. 400

Answer: 300

Explanation:

As per the given data,

Maria and 3 friends have 1200 soccer cards

If soccer cards shared equally by four members = 1200/4 = 300

Then, each person received soccer cards = 300

Thus the correct answer is option c.

Question 5.

Six groups of students sell 162 balloons at the school carnival. There are 3 students in each group. If each student sells the same number of balloons, how many balloons does each student sell?

Options:

a. 9

b. 18

c. 27

d. 54

Answer: 9

Explanation:

As per the given, data,

Six groups of students sell 162 balloons at the school carnival

There are 3 students in each group

Then, total number of students in 6 groups = 6 x 3 = 18

If each student sells the same number of balloons = 162 / 18 = 9

Number of balloons sells by each student = 9

Thus the correct answer is option a.

Type below:

_________

Answer: 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 and final locations

Explanation:

We have three fractions with different denominators: sixths, thirds, and halves.

The first step is to make all the denominators equal for 1/6, 1/3, 1/2.

In this case, we want sixths since LCM(2, 3, 6) = 6

since 1/3 = 2/6, and 1/2 = 3/6. Now we can start solving.

1. There are six tires at the following: 1/6, 2/6, 3/6, 4/6, 5/6, and 6/6.

2. There are three cones at the following (G.C.F.): 2/6 (or 1/3), 4/6 (or 2/3), and 6/6 (or 3/3).

3. There are two hurdles at the following (G.C.F.): 3/6 (or 1/2) and 6/6 (or 2/2).

We look for common numbers.

1. On 2/6, there are two obstacles: a tire and a cone.

2. On 3/6, there are two obstacles: a tire and a hurdle.

3. On 4/6, there are two obstacles: a tire and a cone.

4. At 6/6, there are three obstacles: a tire, cone, and a hurdle.

2/6 = 1/3

3/6 = 1/2

4/6 = 2/3

6/6 = 1

The answers are 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, and 1.

Every \(\frac{1}{2}\) hour Naomi stretches her neck; every \(\frac{1}{3}\) hour she stretches her legs; and every \(\frac{1}{6}\) hour she stretches her arms. Which parts of her body will Naomi stretch when \(\frac{2}{3}\) of an hour has passed?

Options:

a. neck and legs

b. neck and arms

c. legs and arms

d. none

Answer: legs and arms

Explanation:

Summing \(\frac{1}{2}\)‘s only gives integer values giving 1, 2, 3, 4…or

integer values +\(\frac{1}{2}\) and 0 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\), 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\), 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\)…

So neck is excluded

Every \(\frac{1}{3}\): \(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{2}{3}\)

Legs will be stretched at \(\frac{2}{3}\) hour

Every \(\frac{1}{6}\): \(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{4}{6}\)

Divide top and bottom by 2 giving:

(4 ÷ 2)/(6 ÷ 2) = \(\frac{2}{3}\)

Arms will be stretched at \(\frac{2}{3}\) hour.

Thus the correct answer is option c.

Options:

a. 6,315 miles

b. 7,295 miles

c. 7,305 miles

d. 36,383 miles

Answer: 7,305 miles

Explanation:

If at the beginning of the year, the Wong family’s car had driven 14539 miles and at the end of the year, it had driven 21844 miles, then subtract 14539 from 21844 to determine the difference between the two values, which will tell you how many miles the Wong family drove their car for during the year.

21844 – 14539 = 7305 miles

Thus the correct answer is option c.
