Equivalent fractions are fractions which have the same value despite having different numerators and denominators. For example, the fraction 1 over 2 is equivalent to the fraction 3 over 6. To find an equivalent fraction we need to multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same number.Β

A fraction is in its simplest form when there are no common factors that can be cancelled from the numerator and denominator. When simplifying fractions we need to divide the numerator and denominator by the same number, for example letβs look at the given fraction of 15 over 20. This can be simplified to 3 over 4 by dividing the top and bottom by the common factor 5. There are no other whole numbers that are factors of 3 and 4, so the fraction is in its simplest form.

When comparing fractions, we can use the concept of equivalent fractions to rewrite the fractions with a common denominator. For example, for two different fractions such as 3 over 5 and 2 over 7, we need to look at the denominators and find the lowest common multiple of both numbers. In this case the lowest common denominator of 5 and 7 is 35 and so we need to write both fractions with a denominator of 35 and then calculate the missing numerators.

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example a percentage worksheet or a rounding worksheet. There are also lots of additional fractions resources available.
