The following worksheets will teach your students how to calculate equivalent values for given fractions.

#### This is not just helpful for reducing terms of a fraction, but they can help elevate our comparison skills in the fraction world. If you find fractions that are not equal to each other, you can quickly gauge the larger value. I do this all the time in my kitchen when cooking. I’m not big on paying for measuring spoons. I make it work by just using three measurement spoons and the skills that I learned here. This also applies to hundreds of different measurements. When the stock market quotes were in fraction form, people put food on their table using this skill. Equivalent fractions are two or more fractions that are equal in proportion for example 3/4 and 6/8. When you reduce 6/8, it is equal to 3/4. Being able to identify these equal proportions quickly is a key skill that starts with fractions and quickly spring boards into algebra, when we are looking for reduced terms.

In this pile of worksheets you will be given picture to help you really see when two proportional fractions are equal. These worksheets explain how to convert fractions to equivalent fractions in order to compare them. Your students will use these activity sheets to learn how to determine the equivalent values of fractions through the use of shaded figures, the lowest common denominator, and the least common multiple.

## Lessons

Students will learn how to convert fractions to like denominators in order to compare them. The step-by-step solution to a sample problem is presented.

## Find the Least Common Multiple Practice

The least common multiple of two or more non-zero whole numbers is actually the smallest whole number that is divisible by each of the numbers.

## LCM Worksheet

First, factor out each number and express it as a product of prime number powers.

## Making Equal Fractions Worksheet

Make the fractions to have the same denominator and then compare using the symbols: <, >, or =.
