Property of Multiplication Used to Find Equivalent Fractions


Question: What property of multiplication is used to find equivalent fractions?

Equivalent fractions can be defined as fractions that may have different numerators and denominators but they represent the same value.

Answer: The property of multiplication is used to find equivalent fractions is called cross-multiplication.

Let's discuss the Cross Multiplication Method.

Explanation:

In order to find equivalent fractions, we cross-multiply their bases with each other. This method is known as cross multiplication. 

Have a look at the method given below:

a/b = c/d if a × d = b × c

Thus, the property of multiplication is used to find equivalent fractions is called cross-multiplication.
