1. 1. Making Equivalent Fractions
2. 2. <ul><li>Multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number. </li></ul><ul><li>You will get a new fraction with the same value as the original fraction. </li></ul><ul><li>We are not changing the value of the fraction, because we are simply multiplying by a fraction that is equivalent to ONE . </li></ul>To Make Equivalent Fractions
3. 3. 5 x 1 = 5 23 x 1 = 23 37 x 1 = 37 7 x 1 = 7 17 x 1 = 17 What do you get when you multiply a number by 1? You get that number!
4. 4. All these fractions = 1 When the numerator & denominator of a fraction are the same , the fraction equals 1. 4 4 33 33 5 5 2 2 7 7
5. 5. What do you get when you multiply a fraction by 1? You get AN EQUIVALENT FRACTION that makes adding & subtracting fractions possible.
6. 6. x = = This fraction equals 1. These fractions represent the same amount.
7. 7. x = = This fraction equals 1. These fractions represent the same amount.
