## How do you solve fractions that equal each other with variables?

Correct answer: To solve an equation with a variable in a fraciton, treat the denominator as a constant value and multiply both sides of the equation by the denominator in order to eliminate it.

**How do you solve algebraic fractions?**

When adding or subtracting algebraic fractions, the first thing to do is to put them onto a common denominator (by cross multiplying). When solving equations containing algebraic fractions, first multiply both sides by a number/expression which removes the fractions.

**What is an equivalent algebraic fraction?**

If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are multiplied (or divided) by the same nonzero number, then the resulting fraction is equivalent to the original fraction.

### How do you find equivalent algebraic expressions?

Combine any like terms on each side of the equation: x-terms with x-terms and constants with constants. Arrange the terms in the same order, usually x-term before constants. If all of the terms in the two expressions are identical, then the two expressions are equivalent.

**What is it called when both sides of an equation are equal?**

Sometimes people refer to this as keeping the equation “balanced”. If you think of an equation as being like a balance scale, the quantities on each side of the equation are equal, or balanced.

**How do you solve a fraction equivalent of a fraction?**

To find equivalent fractions, we multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number, so we need to multiply the denominator of 7 by a number that will give us 21. Since 3 multiplied by 7 gives us 21, we can find an equivalent fraction by multiplying both the numerator and denominator by 3.

## How do you find the equivalent fraction of an equation?

Multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number. For instance, if we take the fraction 4/8 and multiply both the numerator and denominator by 2, we get (4×2)/(8×2) = 8/16. These two fractions are equivalent.
