## PSEB Solutions for Class 5 Maths Chapter 4 Fractions Ex 4.3

Question 1.

Check whether the following fractions are equivalent or not :

(a) \(\frac{3}{7}\) and \(\frac{6}{14}\)

(b) \(\frac{11}{14}\) and \(\frac{77}{98}\)

(c) \(\frac{6}{9}\) and \(\frac{24}{36}\)

(d) \(\frac{5}{8}\) and \(\frac{10}{24}\)

(e) \(\frac{7}{12}\) and \(\frac{14}{21}\)

(f) \(\frac{8}{9}\) and \(\frac{40}{54}\)

Solution:

(a) Numerator of first fraction × Denominator of second fraction

= 3 × 14 = 42

Denominator of first fraction × Numerator of second fraction

= 7 × 6 = 42

Both the products are equal. So these fractions are equivalent.

(b) Numerator of first fraction × Deno-minator of second fraction

= 11 × 98 = 1078

Denominator of first fraction × Num-erator of second fraction

= 14 × 77 = 1078

Both the products are equal, so these fractions are equivalent.

(c) Numerator of first fraction × Denominator of second fraction

= 6 × 36 = 216

Denominator of first fraction × Numerator of second fraction

= 9 × 24 = 216

Both the products are equal, so these fractions are equivalent.

(d) Numerator of first fraction × Denominator of second fraction

= 5 × 24 = 120

Denominator of first fraction × Numerator of second fraction

= 8 × 10 = 80

Both the products are not equal, so these fractions are not equivalent.

(e) Numerator of first fraction × Denominator of second fraction

= 7 × 21 = 147

Denominator of first fraction × Numerator of second fraction

= 12 × 14= 168

Both the products are not equal, so these fractions are not equivalent.

(f) Numerator of first fraction × Denominator of second fraction.

= 8 × 54 = 432

Denominator of first fraction × Numerator of second fraction

= 9 × 40 = 360

Both the products are not equal, so these fractions are not equivalent.
