In conversion of fractions into fractions having same denominator are explained here in this topic. Let there be two fractions 3/4 and 2/3. They may be changed into fractions having the same denominator.
For the purpose of having the same denominator, the numerators and denominators of the given fractions are multiplied by the common multiple of the given denominators.Here the common multiple of 4 and 3 is 12.
Hence, 3/4 and 2/3
9/12 and 8/12
So, 3/4 and 2/3 = 9/12 and 8/12
