Before, we just looked at pictures to see if two fractions were equivalent... But, we need to be able to do it without pictures.
What about these?
I don't know about you, but I don't want to try to draw something with 800 pieces! Whew!
Let's take the fraction with the bigger numbers and reduce it:
Hey, they ARE the same!
In fact, we can find a bunch of fractions that are equivalent to these:
Can you find five fractions
that are equivalent to ?
(Remember, you can check your answers by reducing!)
