Fraction booklet Equivalent fractions: An equivalent fractions is a fraction that is equal to a simple fraction for example 3/9 is equal to 1/3 because 9 divided by 3 is 3 so 3/9 equals 1/3. A trick to find an equivalent fraction is to divide the numerator and denominator. Mixed number:
Improper fraction: An improper fraction is a fraction with the numerator bigger than the denominator. An improper fraction is equal to a mixed number, an example is 20/5 is equal to 4 wholes.
A mixed number is when there's a fraction with a whole, an example is 6 2/3 which means six wholes and two thirds.
