(ii) Count the number of shaded parts.  (iii) The fraction the shaded part represents =  Number of equal parts shadedTotal number of parts in which the figure is equally divided ∴The fractions shown in the diagrams are 412, 39, 26, 13, 615 respectively. Now, 412=13, 39=13, 26=13 615=25. ⇒  All of these fractions are not equivalent.  (∵615≠13, all the other fractions are equal to 13)
