Multiply $\frac{3}{8}$ by a fraction that is equivalent to $1$

A fraction that is equivalent is equal 1 such as $\frac{2}{2}\text{}\text{or}\text{}\frac{3}{3}$

The ratio remains unchanged since multiplying by one and an equivalent fraction are equivalent.

This fraction would be equal to $\frac{a}{a}=1$ where a is an integer.

Thus, an example would be that

$\frac{2}{2}\cdot \frac{3}{8}=\frac{6}{16}$

Solution:

There are infinite fractions that equal to $\frac{3}{8}$ there are infinite fractions that equal to $\frac{3}{8}$

Procedure/Step(s):

1) Make sure that the number you choose is both the numerator and the denominator.

For example: $\frac{4}{4}$

(You can choose any number; you're not required to choose 4.)

2) Multiply the fraction that you chose with $\frac{3}{8}$

Note: Do not simplify! If you do, you'll only end up getting $\frac{3}{8}$

$\frac{3}{8}\times \frac{4}{4}=\frac{12}{32}$

So, an equivalent fraction to $\frac{3}{8}\text{is}\frac{12}{32}$
