# A Wonderful World of Fractions

### By Haley

## What are equivalent fractions?

Equivalent fractions are fractions that are different but can be the same because when you are simplifying, they are going to be the same no matter what. For example, lets use 2/4 and 1/2. They're equivalent because when you draw two circles, and one of them only is cut one time and the other is cut twice. For the first one shade in one of the two and on the second one shade in just two. Can you tell the difference? No! Because they are the same!
