How do you find an equivalent fraction?
In this lesson you will learn howto find equivalent fractions by   using the identity principle.
A common mistake is…Thinking that fractions are equivalentbecause they have the same numerator.
Let’s ReviewFractions that look different can beequivalent (have the same value)
The Identity PrincipleIf you multiply or divide any number by     1, you get the same number.3x1=3                 3_1=3
This also works for fractions.
1 can also be a fraction. When the numeratorand denominator are the same, the fractionequals 1.       =1          =1      ...
What if we multiplied or divided a fractionby a fraction that equaled one?
In this lesson you learned howto find equivalent fractions by   using the identity principle.
