# Which fraction is equivalent to 2/4?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking us to identify a fraction that represents the same value as 2/4. To find equivalent fractions, we typically multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same number.

The equivalent fractions for $\frac{2}{4}$ include $\frac{1}{2}$, $\frac{4}{8}$, and $\frac{6}{12}$.

The equivalent fractions for $\frac{2}{4}$ include $\frac{1}{2}$, $\frac{4}{8}$, and $\frac{6}{12}$.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Multiply the fraction by a whole number

To find equivalent fractions, we can multiply both the numerator and the denominator of the fraction $\frac{2}{4}$ by the same whole number. For example, let's multiply by 2:

$$\frac{2 \times 2}{4 \times 2} = \frac{4}{8}$$

1. Divide the fraction by a whole number

Alternatively, we can also divide the numerator and the denominator by the same whole number, provided it evenly divides both. If we divide by 2:

$$\frac{2 \div 2}{4 \div 2} = \frac{1}{2}$$

1. More examples of equivalent fractions

By continuing this method, we can find more equivalent fractions. For example, if we multiply the original fraction by 3:

$$\frac{2 \times 3}{4 \times 3} = \frac{6}{12}$$

So, the fractions $\frac{4}{8}$, $\frac{1}{2}$, and $\frac{6}{12}$ are all equivalent to $\frac{2}{4}$.

The equivalent fractions for $\frac{2}{4}$ include $\frac{1}{2}$, $\frac{4}{8}$, and $\frac{6}{12}$.
