Equivalent Fractions w/ Common Denominators
You can find a common denominator of two fractions. A common denominator of two fractions is a common multiple of their denominators.Find a common denominator of 1/6 and 7/10. Rewrite the pair of fractions using a common denominator.Step 1Identify the denominators. The denominators are 6 and 10.Step 2List the multiples of the greater denominator, 10. Multiples of 10: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, …Step 3Check if any of the multiples of the greater denominator are evenly divisible by the other denominator. Both 30 and 60 are evenly divisible by 6. Common denominators of 1/6 and 7/10 are 30 and 60.Step 4Rewrite the fractions with a denominator of 30. Multiply the numerator and the denominator of each fraction by the same number so that the denominator results in 30.Find the equivalent fractions for the problems below. Both must have the same denominators.½ and ⅚ 2. ⅗ and ¼
