An equivalent fraction is a fraction that represents the same value as another fraction, even though the numbers (numerator and denominator) are different.
For example, the fractions 1/2 and 2/4 are equivalent, because they both represent the same quantity – onehalf. To find an equivalent fraction, you can multiply or divide both the numerator and denominator by the same number. This will give you a new fraction with different numbers, but the same overall value.
Some key properties of equivalent fractions:
 They represent the same portion or amount.
 The ratios of the numerator to the denominator are the same.
 You can convert between equivalent fractions by multiplying/dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number.
 Equivalent fractions are useful for comparing, adding/subtracting, and working with fractions.
