Multiply #3/8# by an equivalent fraction that equals #1#.

An equivalent fraction is equal to 1 such as #2/2# or #3/3#

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

This fraction would be equal to #a/a=1# where a is an integer.

Hence an example would be that

#2/2 * 3/8 = 6/16#

Explanation:

As I said, there are infinite fractions that equal to #3/8#. Therefore, I' m going to show you a way to get a fraction equivalent to #3/8#.

Procedure/Step(s):

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

Example: #4/4#
(You don't have to pick 4/pick any number you want!)
