### Q: How do you determine if fractions are equivalent?

To determine if fractions are equivalent, count the total number of circles in each diagram and the number of shaded circles. Then, simplify the fractions to their simplest form by dividing both the numerator and denominator by the highest common factor.

### Q: What is the highest common factor?

The highest common factor (HCF) is the largest number that divides both the numerator and denominator without leaving a remainder.

### Q: How do you simplify fractions?

To simplify fractions, divide both the numerator and denominator by their highest common factor. This reduces the fraction to its simplest form.

### Q: Why is it important to simplify fractions?

Simplifying fractions allows for easier comparison and identification of equivalent fractions. It also provides a clearer understanding of the relationship between different fractions.

## Summary & Key Takeaways

• The video explains how to determine if fractions are equivalent by counting the total number of circles in each diagram and the number of shaded circles.

• The fractions are then simplified to their simplest form by finding the highest common factor and dividing the numerator and denominator by it.

• By comparing the simplest form of each fraction, it is determined if they are equivalent or not.
