EQUIVALENT FRACTION:
- Equivalent Fractions have the same value, even though they may look different.
- When two fractions are equal in overall quantity or value they are called equivalent fractions. We can say that two fractions are considered equivalent when it can be demonstrated that each fraction can be used to represent the same amount of a given object.

When you multiply or divide both the top and bottom by the same number, the fraction keeps it's value. The rule to remember is: WHAT YOU DO TO THE TOP OF THE FRACTION, MUST ALSO BE DONE AT THE TOP.
