If you consider a fraction e.g. 3/4 then providing you multiply the top and bottom numbers by the same number the resulting fraction will always be equivalent to 3/4.

For example: 3/4 is equivalent to 6/8 (times both numbers by 2)

Or: 3/4 is equivalent to 9/12 (times both numbers by 3)

Hope this helps!
