Question

How do I draw a tape diagram showing the equivalence of 24:32 and 48:64

1 Answer

  • Start by simplifying both fractions

    [tex]

    \dfrac{24}{32}=\dfrac{12}{16}=\dfrac{6}{8}=\dfrac{3}{4} \\

    \dfrac{48}{64}=\dfrac{24}{32}=\dfrac{12}{16}=\dfrac{6}{8}=\dfrac{3}{4}

    [/tex]

    As you can see both fractions simplify to a same value hence the equality

    [tex]\dfrac{24}{32}=\dfrac{48}{64}[/tex]

    stands.

    Hope this helps.
