Correct Answer is : Figure 2

Step: 1

In Figure 1, one out of four parts is shaded (1 4 ^{th} part).

Step: 2

In Figure 2, one out of ten parts is shaded (1 10 ^{th} part).

Step: 3

In Figure 3, one out of eight parts is shaded (1 8 ^{th} part).

Step: 4

In Figure 4, one out of six parts is shaded (1 6 ^{th} part).

Step: 5

So, Figure 3 is 1 8 ^{th} part shaded.

Correct Answer is : Figure 3

Step: 1

In Figure 1, one out of eight parts is shaded (1 8 ^{th} part).

Step: 2

In Figure 2, two out of eight parts is shaded (2 8 ^{rd} part).

Step: 3

In Figure 3, three out of eight parts is shaded (3 8 ^{th} part).

Step: 4

In Figure 4, four out of eight parts is shaded (4 8 ^{th} part).

Step: 5

So, Figure 2 is 2 8 ^{th} part shaded.

Correct Answer is : Figure 2

Step: 1

Figure 1 represents the fraction 3 4.

[3 out of 4 parts is shaded]

Step: 2

Figure 2 represents the fraction 9 12.

[9 out of 12 parts is shaded]

Step: 3

And 9 12 is equivalent to 3 4

[Dividing both numerator and denominator of 9 12 by 3.]

Step: 4

Figure 3 represents the fraction 8 12.

[8 out of 12 parts is shaded.]

Step: 5

So, Figure 1 and Figure 2 have an equivalent fraction shaded.

[From steps 1 and 3.]

Correct Answer is : Figure 1 and Figure 2

Step: 1

In Figure 1, 1 out of 4 parts are shaded. So, the fraction represented by it is 1 4 .

Step: 2

In Figure 2, 1 out of 8 parts are shaded. So, the fraction represented by it is 1 8 .

Step: 3

In Figure 3, 3 out of 12 parts are shaded. So it represents 3 12 .

Step: 4

An equivalent fraction is a fraction whose numerator and denominator are a multiple of the numerator and denominator of the original fraction.

For example,2 3 is a fraction. 4 6 is a fraction equivalent to 2 3 ; **4** is a multiple of **2** and **6** is a multiple of **3**.

For example,

Step: 5

So, Figure 1 and Figure 3 represent equivalent fractions.

[Figure 1 represents 1 4 and Figure 3 represents 3 12 = 1 × 3 4 × 3 = 1 4 .]

Correct Answer is : Figure 1 and Figure 3

Step: 1

Figure A represents the fraction 1 4 .

[1 out of 4 parts is shaded.]

Step: 2

Figure 1 represents the fraction 1 2 .

[1 out of 2 parts is shaded.]

Step: 3

Figure 2 represents the fraction 4 8 .

[4 out of 8 parts are shaded.]

Step: 4

Figure 3 represents the fraction 2 8 .

[2 out of 8 parts are shaded.]

Step: 5

An equivalent fraction is a fraction whose numerator and denominator are a multiple of the numerator and denominator of the original fraction.

For example,2 3 is a fraction. 4 6 is a fraction equivalent to 2 3 ; **4** is a multiple of **2** and **6** is a multiple of **3**.

For example,

Step: 6

So, Figure 3 shows a fraction equivalent to the fraction represented by Figure A.

[Figure 3 respresents the fraction 2 8 = 1 × 2 4 × 2 = 1 4 which is the fraction represented by Figure A.]

Correct Answer is : Figure 3

The fractions represented by the pair in Figure 1 are 2 8 and 2 4 .

Step: 2

The fractions represented by the pair in Figure 2 are 4 8 and 2 4 .

Step: 3

The fractions represented by the pair in Figure 3 are 5 8 and 3 4 .

Step: 4

The fractions represented by the pair in Figure 4 are 4 8 and 3 4 .

Step: 5

An equivalent fraction is a fraction whose numerator and denominator are a multiple of the numerator and denominator of the original fraction.

For example,2 3 is a fraction. 4 6 is a fraction equivalent to 2 3 ; **4** is a multiple of **2** and **6** is a multiple of **3**.

For example,

Step: 6

So, fractions represented by the pair in Figure 2 are equivalent.
