# Fraction Wall

## Fraction Wall - How it Works - Video

### Example 1 Example 1:

To find an equivalent fraction, one way is to draw a fraction wall. At the very top is the number 1 and each section below is divided into equal sections. Right below the 1 is two equal sections and so each one is 1/2. The one below that is divided into 6 equal sections so each one is 1/6. When we look at the 1/2 on the left, there are 3 sections of 1/6 that make up the same amount of space. So 1/2 = 3/6.

### Example 2 Example 2:

To find an equivalent fraction, one way is to draw a fraction wall. At the very top is the number 1 and each section below is divided into equal sections. Right below the 1 is two equal sections and so each one is 1/2. The one below that is divided into 12 equal sections so each one is 1/12. When we look at the 1/2 on the left, there are 6 sections of 1/12 that make up the same amount of space. So 1/2 = 6/12.

### Example 3 Example 3:

To find an equivalent fraction, one way is to draw a fraction wall. At the very top is the number 1 and each section below is divided into equal sections. Right below the 1 is 3 equal sections and so each one is 1/3. The one below that is divided into 6 equal sections so each one is 1/6. When we look at the 2/3 on the left, there are 4 sections of 1/6 that make up the same amount of space. So 2/3 = 4/6.

### Example 4 Example 4:

To find an equivalent fraction, one way is to draw a fraction wall. At the very top is the number 1 and each section below is divided into equal sections. Right below the 1 is 4 equal sections and so each one is 1/4. The one below that is divided into 12 equal sections so each one is 1/12. When we look at the 3/4 on the left, there are 9 sections of 1/12 that make up the same amount of space. So 3/4 = 9/12.
