. What are Fractions in mathematics


Best Answer

In Mathematics, fractions are represented as a numerical value, which describes the whole fraction. A fraction can be a portion or section of any whole number, in which case it can all be any number, specific value, or thing.

Example: Find the two fractions that are equivalent to 4/7.

Solution: Equivalent Fraction 1: Let us multiply the numerator and the denominator with the same number 2. This means, 4/7= (4 × 2)/(7 × 2) = 8/14

Equivalent Fraction 2: Let us multiply the numerator and the denominator with the same number 3. This means, 4/7 = (4 × 3)/ (7 × 3) = 12/21

Therefore, 8/14, 12/21, and 4/7 are equivalent fractions.
