**Make Connections**

Savannah has \(\frac{2}{4}\) yard of ribbon, and Lin has \(\frac{3}{8}\) yard of ribbon. How can you determine whether Savannah and Lin have the same length of ribbon?

The equal sign (=) and not equal to sign (≠) show whether fractions are equivalent.

Tell whether \(\frac{2}{4}\) and \(\frac{3}{8}\) are equivalent. Write = or ≠.

STEP 1 Shade the amount of ribbon Savannah has.

Answer:

STEP 2 Shade the amount of ribbon Lin has.

Think: \(\frac{2}{4}\) yard is not the same amount as \(\frac{3}{8}\) yard.

So, \(\frac{2}{4}\) _______ \(\frac{3}{8}\).

Answer:

\(\frac{2}{4}\) is not equal to \(\frac{3}{8}\)

Explanation:

**Math Talk**

Mathematical Processes

How could you use a model to show that \(\frac{4}{8}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\)?

Answer:

We could use a model by using fraction strips. Next, we need to line up 4 eighth-size parts below 1 half-size part.
