10/16

Just times the numerator by two and the denominator by two. As long as you times OR divide both numbers (**only** times or divide) (as long as they can both be divided by a number) then the original and new fraction will be the same but simplified or made more complex.

e.g. 5/8 - 5 x 2 =10 - 8 x 2 = 16

therefore an equivalent is 10/16

try dividing the numbers by two. See?

e.g. 12/14

to simplify the fraction, divide them. 12 and 14 are even, so i'll divide by two first. 12 ÷ 2 = 6 14 ÷ 2 = 7

therefore, 12/14 = 6/7 and it can't be simplified further.

Makes sense? If you need more help, just ask me. :)
