Question 6.

(i) Find the equivalent fraction of \frac{15}{35} with denominator 7.
(ii) Find the equivalent fraction of \frac{2}{9} with denominator 63.

Answer

(i) \frac{15}{35}=\frac{ . . .}{7}
Let the numerator be a
⇒ 15 × 7 = 35 × a
a=\frac{15 \times 7}{35}
⇒ a = 3
∴ \frac{15}{35}=\frac{3}{7}

(ii) \frac{2}{9}=\frac{\dots}{63}
Let the numerator, which needs to be calculated as x
⇒ 2 × 63 = 9 × x
⇒ x=\frac{2 \times 63}{9}
⇒ x = 14
∴ \frac{2}{9}=\frac{14}{63}

Question 7

Find the equivalent fraction of \frac{3}{5} having
(i) denominator 30
(ii) numerator 27.

Answer

(i) \frac{3}{5} having denominator 30
Multiply and divide the fraction by 6, we get
\frac{3}{5} \times \frac{6}{6}=\frac{18}{30}

(ii) \frac{3}{5} having numerator 27
Multiply and divide the fraction by 9, we get
\frac{3}{5} \times \frac{9}{9}=\frac{27}{45}
