**What Are Equivalent Fractions?**

Equivalent fractions are fractions that are equal in value. They are equivalent because they represent the same proportion of a whole.

In this lesson we are going to see how this makes sense by using pictures.

Fractions are pieces of a whole. Even though there may be different numbers in the numerators and denominators, fractions can still be equal. We can use pictures to illustrate this and compare fractions.
