We have,

^{2}/_{4}=^{(1 × 2)}/_{(2 × 2)}

^{3}/_{6}=^{(1 × 3)}/_{(2 × 3)}

^{4}/_{8}=^{(1 × 4)}/_{(2 × 4)}

We observe that

Thus, an equivalent fraction of a given fraction can be obtained by multiplying its numerator and denominator by the same number (other than zero).

^{2}/_{4}=^{(2÷ 2)}/_{(4 ÷ 2)}=^{1}/_{2}

^{3}/_{6}=^{(3÷ 3)}/_{(6 ÷ 3)}=^{1}/_{2}

^{4}/_{8}=^{(4 ÷ 4)}/_{(8 ÷ 4)}=^{1}/_{2}

We observe that if we divide the numerators and denominators of

Thus, an equivalent fraction of a given fraction can be obtained by dividing its numerator and denominator by their common factor (other than 1), if ant.

**Note:**

(ii) Dividing its numerator (top) and denominator (bottom) by their common factor (other than 1).
