# Write the fractions and pair up the equivalent fractions from each row.

**Solution:**

We use the concepts of fractions and equivalent fractions to write the fractions based on the shaded portions in the images and determine if the fractions are equivalent.

Fractions that have the same values irrespective of their numerators and denominators are called equivalent fractions.

(a) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 1 / 2.

(b) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 4 / 6 = 2 / 3

(c) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 3 / 9 = 1 / 3

(d) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 2 / 8 = 1 / 4

(e) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 3 / 4 (already in the reduced form)

(i) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 6 / 18 = 1 / 3

(ii) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 4 / 8 = 1 / 2

(iii) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 12 / 16 = 3 / 4

(iv) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 8 / 12 = 2 / 3

(v) The fraction represented by the shaded portion is 4 / 16 = 1 / 4

The pair of equivalent fractions are a) 1/2 and ii) 1 / 2, b) 2 / 3 and iv) 2 / 3, c) 1 / 3 and i) 1 / 3, d) 1 / 4 and v) 1 / 4, and e) 3 / 4 and iii) 3 / 4
