### Equivalent Fraction Practice

#### Question 1

Which of these fractions below that are equivalent to 4/8 ?

1. 1/5
2. 1/2
3. 12/24
4. 6/10

A. I & II
B. II & III
C. III & IV
D. All of the above

### Step by Step Solution

• #### Step 1

We know that equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value. Hence, we need to calculate the value of 4/8 as a start.

4/8 = 4÷8 = 0.5

From here, only fractions that are equivalent to 4/8 will have the value of 0.5.

• #### Step 2

Now, Let's calculate value of 1/5.

1/5 = 1÷5 = 0.2

Since the value of 1/5 is not equals to 0.5, this fraction is not equivalent to 4/8.

• #### Step 3

Next, as for 1/2,

1/2 = 1÷2 = 0.5

The value of 1/2 is equals to 0.5. Hence, this fraction is equivalent to 4/8.

• #### Step 4

Next, as for 12/24,

12/24 = 12÷24 = 0.5

The value of 12/24 is equals to 0.5. Hence, this fraction is equivalent to 4/8.

• #### Step 5

Finally, let's find out the value of 6/10.

6/10 = 6÷10 = 0.6

Since the value of 6/10 is not equals to 0.5, this fraction is not equivalent to 4/8.

• #### Step 6

Only II and III is equivalent to 4/8. Clearly, the answer is B.
