If you are given a fraction you can find an equivalent fraction by multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same number.
Example 1: If you are given the fraction 1/2. You can multiply the numerator by a 3 and the denominator by a 3.
This means that 1/2 and 3/6 are equivalent fractions.
Example 2: If you are given the fraction 3/5. You can multiply the numerator by a 2 and the denominator by a 2.
This means that 3/5 and 6/10 are equivalent fractions.
To find an equivalent fractionby using multiplication, all you have to do is multiply both the numerator and the deniminator (top/bottom) by the same number. For example 3/4 3x2/4x2 is equal to 6/8
