2-77.

Figure out whether each of the following pairs of fractions is a pair of equivalent fractions. Be sure to show all of your work or explain your thinking clearly. Homework Help ✎

1. $\frac { 1 } { 4 }$ and $\frac { 25 } { 100 }$

Multiply the numerator and the denominator of the first fraction by 25 and compare your answer to the second fraction.

$\frac{1}{4}\cdot\frac{25}{25} = \frac{25}{100}$

These are equivalent fractions.

2. $\frac { 3 } { 5 }$ and $\frac { 12 } { 15 }$

Use the same method as in part (a).

3. $\frac { 4 } { 5 }$ and $\frac { 5 } { 4 }$

Are either of these fractions less than or greater than 1?
