Equivalent fractions are just equal fractions. So to make an equivalent fractions, whatever you do to one side, you just have to do to the other side.

For example, this picture shows the number of green Dots, to the number of total Dots. So to get an equivalent fraction, i just multiplied both the green and total by 2. You may also divide the two different numbers if you like.

Here are 3 questions you guys could answer:

What is the ratio for mixed colored crayons to total crayons?

What would the percent be, for
blue crayons to green crayons?

What would the decimal be, fo
pink crayons to total crayons?
