Equivalent fractions: Equivalent fractions are different forms of the fractions that hold the same value. To create equivalent fractions, we can either expand or simplify the fraction.

(0:01)Expanding and Simplifying Fractions: Multiplying or dividing both the numerator and denominator by the same non-zero number. This makes it easier to compare or calculate with fractions.

(2:36)Fully Simplified Fractions: A fraction is fully simplified when the numerator and denominator share no common factors other than 1. Identify common factors and divide repeatedly until no further simplification is possible.
