 Equivalent Fractions Calculator is a tool which is used to determine that if given two fractions are equivalent or not. It is a tool which makes calculations easy and fun. If two fractions are given then it can easily find whether they are equivalent or not.

## Steps for Equivalent Fractions

Step 1 :

Read the problem and go through the given two fractions.

Step 2 :

Simplify the given fraction to its lowest form. In its lowest reduced form if the two given fractions are equal they are equivalent else they are not.

## Example problems on Equivalent Fractions

1. ### Check whether the fractions $\frac{2}{5}$ and $\frac{8}{20}$ are equivalent?

Step 1 :

The given fractions are p = $\frac{2}{5}$ and q = $\frac{8}{20}$

Step 2 :

Simplify the fraction to its lowest form
p = $\frac{2}{5}$ and

q = $\frac{8}{20}$ = $\frac{2}{5}$

Hence p = q and two fractions are equivalent

$\therefore$ $\frac{2}{5}$ and $\frac{8}{20}$ are equivalent.

2. ### Are the fractions $\frac{3}{8}$ and $\frac{9}{15}$ equivalent?

Step 1 :

The given fractions are p = $\frac{3}{8}$ and q = $\frac{9}{15}$

Step 2 :

Simplify the fraction to its lowest form
p = $\frac{3}{8}$ and

q = $\frac{9}{15}$ = $\frac{3}{5}$

p $\neq$ q
Hence the two fractions are not equivalent.

$\therefore$ $\frac{3}{8}$ and $\frac{9}{15}$ are not equivalent to each other.
