### Write Fractions and Equivalent Fractions

1. 1. Write Fractions and Equivalent Fractions Mrs. Young EMC 1
2. 2. How to write fractions <ul><li>Rewrite using a fraction bar </li></ul><ul><li>5 ÷ 7 </li></ul><ul><li>Step 1: The first number goes above the fraction bar </li></ul>
3. 3. Step 2: <ul><li>5 ÷ 7 </li></ul><ul><li>The second number goes below the fraction bar </li></ul>
4. 4. Rewrite 4 ÷ 7 using a fraction bar <ul><li>The first number goes above the fraction bar and the second number goes below the fraction bar: </li></ul>
5. 5. Rewrite 15 ÷ 8 using a fraction bar <ul><li>The first number goes above the fraction bar and the second number goes below the fraction bar: </li></ul>
6. 6. Rewrite using a fraction bar <ul><li>14 ÷ 17 </li></ul><ul><li>19 ÷ 16 </li></ul><ul><li>7 ÷ 10 </li></ul><ul><li>9 ÷ 15 </li></ul>
7. 7. Rewrite using the ÷ symbol <ul><li>The number on top goes before the ÷ symbol and the number on the bottom goes after the ÷ symbol </li></ul><ul><li>15 ÷ 17 </li></ul>
8. 8. Rewrite using the ÷ symbol <ul><li>The number on top goes before the ÷ symbol and the number on the bottom goes after the ÷ symbol. </li></ul><ul><li>13 ÷ 3 </li></ul>
9. 9. Rewrite each using the ÷ symbol
10. 10. Equivalent Fractions <ul><li>Equi valent – equal or the same </li></ul><ul><li>Definition: two fraction that name the same amount are called equivalent fractions. </li></ul>
11. 11. Find an equivalent fraction for <ul><li>First, let’s name the two numbers: </li></ul>numerator denominator
12. 12. Step 1: <ul><li>Follow the equivalent fraction rule: </li></ul><ul><li>**If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are each multiplied by the same counting number, then the new fraction represents the same number. </li></ul>
13. 13. Step 1 continued Multiply the numerator and denominator by 2 = = So, and are equivalent fractions because we multiplied the numerator and the denominator by the same number.
14. 14. More equivalent fractions <ul><li>has many more fractions that are </li></ul><ul><li>equivalent. All that we need to do is multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same counting number. </li></ul>= =
15. 15. Find an equivalent fraction for <ul><li>Multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same counting number. </li></ul>= =
16. 16. Find another equivalent fraction for
