Check whether the given fractions are equivalent: (a) 5 / 9, 30 / 54 (b) 3 / 10, 12 / 50 (c) 7 / 13, 5 / 11

Solution

(a) The given fractions are 5 / 9 and 30 / 54

We have 5× 54 = 270

9 × 30 = 270

5 × 54 = 9 × 30

Therefore the given fractions, 5 / 9 and 30 / 54 are equivalent fractions

(b) The given fractions are 3 / 10 and 12 / 50

We have 3 × 50 = 150

10 × 12 = 120

3 × 50 ≠ 10 × 12

Therefore the given fractions, 3 / 10 and 12 / 50 are not equivalent fractions

(c) The given fractions are 7 / 13 and 5 / 11

We have 7 × 11 = 77

5 × 13 = 65

7 × 11 ≠ 5 × 13

Therefore the given fractions, 7 / 13 and 5 / 11 are not equivalent fractions
