Answer:

A fraction that is equivalent to #3/8# is #6/16#.

Explanation:

To determine a fraction that is equivalent to #3/8#, multiply by a fraction equivalent to #1#

A fraction equivalent to #1# is a fraction such as #2/2# and #3/3#. Multiplying by these is the same as multiplying by #1#, so the ratio does not change.

One example is to multiply #3/8# by #color(red)(2/2)#.

#3/8xxcolor(red)(2/2)=6/16#

#3/8# and #6/16# have the same ratio, #3:8#.

If you divide each numerator by each denominator, the result will also be the same.

#3-:8=0.375#

#6-:16=0.375#

You can do this with any equivalent fraction, even #100/100# and higher!

Other equivalent fractions to #3/8# are:

#9/24," "12/32," "24/64," "60/160," "63/168#
