# Finding Equivalent Fractions

In this worksheet, students practise finding equivalent fractions.

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   Equations and Algebra

Difficulty level:

### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet you must find equivalent fractions.

Equivalent fractions are the same size.

Example

In the diagram, the shaded section represents
 1 3
or
 2 6

You find equivalent fractions by multiplying the numerator and the denominator by the same number.

 1 3
=
 1 × 2 3 × 2
=
 2 6
=
 1 × 3 3 × 3
=
 3 9
=
 1 × 10 3 × 10
=
 10 30

You could also divide the numerator and the denominator by the same number.

This is what you do when you reduce a fraction.

 6 24
=
 6 ÷ 2 24 ÷ 2
=
 3 12
=
 6 ÷ 3 24 ÷ 3
=
 2 8
