Equivalent Fractions of a fraction are those fractions whose numerator and denominator are in the same ratio as that of the original fraction.
Equivalent fraction can be generated by multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number.
In the given figure, shaded parts of the figures represent the equivalent fractions as 1/2 = 2/4 = 4/8.
A. 6/10and 9/15
B. 3/15 and 4/20
C. 2/10 and 3/15
D. none of the above
Correct Answer: A
Step 1: Number of chocolates left with Victor = 5 - 2 = 3
Step 2: The fraction of the chocolates left with Victor =
Step 3: = 3/5 [Substitute.]
Step 4: = 6/10 [Multiply both numerator and denominator by the same non-zero number, 2.]
Step 5: [Multiply both numerator and denominator by the same non-zero number, 3.]
Step 6: So, the two equivalent fractions are and .
