· Equivalent fractions are fractions that look different but have the same value.
· We can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing both top and bottom by the same amount.
· We only multiply or divide, never add or subtract, to get an equivalent fraction.
· Only divide when the top and bottom stay as whole numbers.
· A simple way to look at how to check for equivalent fractions is to do what is called “cross-multiplication”.
