Multiply $\frac{3}{8}$ by an equivalent fraction that equals $1$.

An equivalent fraction is equal to 1 such as $\frac{2}{2}$ or $\frac{3}{3}$

An equivalent fraction is the same as multiplying by $1$
so the ratio does not change.

This fraction would be equal to $\frac{a}{a} = 1$ where a is an integer.

Hence an example would be that

$\frac{2}{2} \cdot \frac{3}{8} = \frac{6}{16}$

There are infinite fractions that equal to $\frac{3}{8}$.

Explanation:

As I said, there are infinite fractions that equal to $\frac{3}{8}$. Therefore, I' m going to show you a way to get a fraction equivalent to $\frac{3}{8}$.

Procedure/Step(s):

1) Pick a number that you want and make sure that that number is both numerator and denominator.

Example: $\frac{4}{4}$
(You don't have to pick 4/pick any number you want!)

2) Multiply the fraction that you chose with $\frac{3}{8}$
Note: Do NOT simplify! If you do, you're just gonna get $\frac{3}{8}$!
$\frac{3}{8}$$\times$$\frac{4}{4}$$=$$\frac{12}{32}$

So, an equivalent fraction to$\frac{3}{8}$ is $\frac{12}{32}$. I hope that helps!

All the best!

There are infinitely many greater equivalent fractions to $\frac{3}{8}$.

Explanation:

First of all, remember:

"Any of operation that occurs to the numerator must also apply to the denominator"

Using this knowledge, we can create any equivalent fraction!;

= $\frac{3}{8}$
= $\frac{3 \cdot 6}{8 \cdot 6}$
= $\frac{18}{48}$
= etc.

All the best!
