Equivalent rational numbers: Two rational numbers are equivalent if their lowest form or standard form after reduction, is equal. In any rational number, its numerator and denominator are multiplied or divided by the same integer to give the equivalent rational number. Let be any rational number, then the equivalent rational number is determined as follow: or Where is any integer. For example: Let us consider a rational number . The equivalent rational numbers are found as follows:
Hence, the equivalent rational numbers of are .
Thus,Two rational numbers are equivalent if their lowest form or standard form after reduction, is equal.
