Identifying Fractions:
FractionsA fraction is a part of a whole, like one half (1/2), one third (1/3), two thirds (2/3), one quarter (1/4), etc. For example, half of an apple is a fraction of an apple.

A fraction can be expressed in the form a/b, where the top number, a, is called the numerator; the bottom number, b, is called the denominator. The denominator of a fraction cannot be equal to zero.

The value of a fraction is not changed if both the numerator and denominator are multiplied ordivided by the same number.

Equivalent Fractions:
Equivalent FractionsEquivalent fractions are different fractions that are equal to the same number and can be simplified and written as the same fraction (for example, 3/6 = 2/4 = 1/2 and 3/9 = 2/6 = 1/3).
