### Example 1

Example 1:

To make an equivalent fraction, we need to multiply the original fraction's numerator and denominator by the same number. In this example we multiply 1 times 5, which is 5, and 2 times 5, which is 10. So our new fraction is 5/10.

We can use division as well. 10 divided by 2 is what? The result is 5. So what number divided by 5 is 1, and that is 5. Two different ways to get the same result.

### Example 2

Example 2:

To make an equivalent fraction, we need to multiply the original fraction's numerator and denominator by the same number. In this example we multiply 1 times 3, which is 3, and 5 times 3, which is 15. So our new fraction is 3/15.

We can use division as well. 3 divided by 1 is what? The result is 3. So what number divided by 3 is 5, and that is 15. Two different ways to get the same result.

### Example 3

Example 3:

To make an equivalent fraction, we need to multiply the original fraction's numerator and denominator by the same number. In this example we multiply 1 times 3, which is 3, and 4 times 3, which is 12. So our new fraction is 3/12.

We can use division as well. 12 divided by 4 is what? The result is 3. So what number divided by 3 is 1, and that is 3. Two different ways to get the same result.

### Example 4

Example 4:

To make an equivalent fraction, we need to multiply the original fraction's numerator and denominator by the same number. In this example we multiply 2 times 5, which is 10, and 3 times 5, which is 15. So our new fraction is 10/15.

We can use division as well. 15 divided by 3 is what? The result is 5. So what number divided by 5 is 2, and that is 10. Two different ways to get the same result.

### Example 5

Example 5:

To make an equivalent fraction, we need to multiply the original fraction's numerator and denominator by the same number. In this example we multiply 3 times 4 which is 12, and 4 times 4, which is 16. So our new fraction is 12/16.

We can use division as well. 16 divided by 4 is what? The result is 4. So what number divided by 4 is 3, and that is 12. Two different ways to get the same result.
