Find the equivalent fraction.

Question 1.
a. \(\frac{3}{5}\) = \(\frac{}{25}\)
Answer:
\(\frac{15}{25}\)

Explanation:
Given,
\(\frac{3}{5}\) = \(\frac{}{25}\)
Let the unknown number be x.
To find the unknown equivalent fraction,
cross multiply the numerator and denominator of the given fractions.
\(\frac{3 × 25}{x × 5}\)
x = \(\frac{75}{5}\)
x = 15
Therefore, \(\frac{3}{5}\) = \(\frac{15}{25}\)

b. \(\frac{2}{6}\) = \(\frac{}{18}\)
Answer:
\(\frac{6}{18}\)

Explanation:
Given,
\(\frac{2}{6}\) = \(\frac{}{18}\)
Let the unknown number be x.
To find the unknown equivalent fraction,
cross multiply the numerator and denominator of the given fractions.
\(\frac{2 × 18}{x × 6}\)
x = \(\frac{36}{16}\)
x = 6
Therefore, \(\frac{2}{6}\) = \(\frac{6}{18}\)

c. \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{9}{}\)
Answer:
\(\frac{9}{18}\)

Explanation:
Given,
\(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{9}{}\)
Let the unknown number be x.
To find the unknown equivalent fraction,
cross multiply the numerator and denominator of the given fractions.
\(\frac{1 × x}{9 × 2}\)
x = 18
Therefore, \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{9}{18}\)

d. \(\frac{2}{8}\) = \(\frac{10}{}\)
Answer:
\(\frac{10}{40}\)

Explanation:
Given,
\(\frac{2}{8}\) = \(\frac{10}{}\)
Let the unknown number be x.
To find the unknown equivalent fraction,
cross multiply the numerator and denominator of the given fractions.
\(\frac{2 × x}{8 × 10}\) = \(\frac{2x}{80}\)
x = \(\frac{80}{2}\)
x = 40
Therefore, \(\frac{2}{8}\) = \(\frac{10}{40}\)

Compare the fractions using <, >, or =.

Write the decimal equivalent to the given fraction.

Question 5.
\(\frac{8}{100}\) = _____________
Answer:
0.08

Explanation:
To find the decimal equivalent of a fraction,
divide the numerator by the denominator.
Because the number in the numerator is smaller than the number in the denominator,
so place the decimal number over its place value.
Therefore, \(\frac{8}{100}\)  = 0.08

Question 6.
\(\frac{4}{10}\) = _____________
Answer:
0.4

Explanation:
To find the decimal equivalent of a fraction,
divide the numerator by the denominator.
Because the number in the numerator is smaller than the number in the denominator,
so place the decimal number over its place value.
Therefore, \(\frac{4}{10}\)  = 0.4
