## How Does Equivalent Fractions Calculator Work?

Any number that can be expressed in the form of a/b is known as a fraction. Here, a is called the numerator, and b is known as the denominator. Equivalent fractions can be defined as fractions that might have a different numerator and denominator but represent that same value. On simplifying equivalent fractions, they get reduced to the same value. The steps to find the equivalent fractions of a given fraction are as follows:

- Multiply the denominator of the given fraction by some arbitrary number x.
- Multiply the numerator by the same number x.
- This will give the equivalent fraction of the given fraction.
- By substituting x with different numeric values such as 2, 3, 5, etc., multiple equivalent fractions can be determined.

There are 4 different methods to check whether the given fractions are equivalent or not. These are:

- Making the denominators the same by taking their LCM.
- Finding the decimal forms of the given fractions.
- Using the cross-multiplication method.
- Employing the visual or graphical method.

## Solved Examples on Equivalent Fractions

**Example 1:** Find three equivalent fractions of 3/5 and verify the result using the online equivalent fractions calculator.

**Solution:**

To get the equivalent fractions of a given fraction, we multiply its numerator and denominator by the same number.

- So, to get the first equivalent fraction, multiply 3/5 by 2/2. (3/5 × 2/2 = 6/10)
- To get the second equivalent fraction, multiply 3/5 by 3/3. (3/5 × 3/3 = 9/15)
- To get the third equivalent fraction, multiply 3/5 by 4/4. (3/5 × 4/4 = 12/20)

Therefore, 6/10, 9/15, and 12/20 are the equivalent fractions of 3/5.

**Example 2:** Find three equivalent fractions of -14/3 and verify the result using the online equivalent fractions calculator.

**Solution:**

To get the equivalent fractions of a given fraction, we multiply its numerator and denominator by the same number.

- So, to get the first equivalent fraction, multiply -14/3 by 2/2. (-14/3 × 2/2 = -28/6)
- To get the second equivalent fraction, multiply -14/3 by 3/3. (-14/3 × 3/3 = -42/9)
- To get the third equivalent fraction, multiply -14/3 by 4/4. (-14/3 × 4/4 = -56/12)

Therefore, -28/6, -42/9, and -56/12 are the equivalent fractions of -14/3.

Now, use the equivalent fractions calculator to find the equivalent fractions of:

- -4/7
- 11/3
