Today we are going to recall how to work out equivalent fractions. As always, if you know your times tables, this learning will be a little easier to work out.
Watch each of the videos and have a go at the learning. Remember, with fractions you need to understand which number is the denominator (below the line) and which is the numerator (above the line.)
When you are working out equivalent fractions, remember our little rhyme from our previous learning....
"Whatever you do to the bottom, you have to do to the top!"
For example: 1/3 is equivalent to 4/12
How do I know? What do I need to multiply the numerator 1 by to get to 4? 1 x 4 =4
Therefore, I need to also multiply the denominator by the same number so: 3 x 4 =12
Have a go and see how you get on!
