# Give three fractions that equal 5/8 ?

Mar 12, 2017

$\frac{10}{16}$, $\frac{15}{24}$, $\frac{50}{80}$

#### Explanation:

In general any fraction of the form $\frac{5 n}{8 n}$ where $n$ is any number other than 0 will equal $\frac{5}{8}$

This is because: $\frac{5 \cancel{n}}{8 \cancel{n}} = \frac{5}{8}$

In the answers above, I have chosen arbitrarily $n = 2 , n = 3 , n = 10$ to arrive at the three fractions requested:

$\frac{10}{16}$, $\frac{15}{24}$, $\frac{50}{80}$
