# What does it mean for two fractions to be equivalent?

Equivalent fractions can be written by multiplying or dividing both the numerator and the denominator by the same number.

## Answer: Two fractions are said to be equivalent if both of them get reduced to the same number when they are simplified.

Equivalent fractions have the same value in the reduced form.

**Explanation:**

Consider examples, 2/4 and 3/6. Both these fractions can be reduced and expressed in the simplest form as 1/2. They both have equal value and therefore they are equivalent fractions.

### Therefore, two fractions are equivalent if both the fractions are equal when they are written in the simplified form.
