Can you write a word problem that requires you to use equivalent fractions to solve?

2. 4/8 x2= 8/16=1/2 1/2 x12= 12/24
-Billy

3. 1/8+2/3=19/24

3/24+16/24=19/24

4. Kendra had collected 96 stickers by the end of the weekend. On Saturday she bought 1/3 of them at the store. On Sunday, her sister Amy-Lee gave her 1/4 of the stickers she collected. The rest her Aunt Caddie gave to her. How many stickers did Aunt Caddie give her?
1/3+1/4=?
4/12+3/12 = 7/12
7/12 = 14/24 = 56/96
96-56 = 40
Aunt Caddie gave Kendra 40 stickers.

5. Mary has 3/4 cups of sugar to use in her cake.
Leah has 3 times as much as Mary.
Alice has 6 times as much as Leah.
How much sugar do all the girls have all together?
Simplify.

3/4 x3= 9/12 9/12 x6= 54/72 27/36, 3/4
In all 2 and 1/4

6. 1/6 x 4/4 = 6/24 = 3/12 = 1/4 (4/4 = 1)

1/4 x 12/12 = 12/36 = 3/9 = 1/3 (12/12 = 1)

7. 7/8*4/5 = 28/40 = 7/10

7/10 \ 14/20 = 7/10 * 20/14 = 2/2 = 1
