Modified by The Match Foundation, Inc.Find two fractions that are equivalent to each of the following:
a. $${{1\over8}}$$
b. $${{5\over12}}$$
c. $${{4\over3}}$$
Solve for the missing value.
a. $${{2\over5}={10\over \square}}$$
b. $${{5\over4}={\square\over16}}$$

The model below is made up of equal-sized pieces.
Explain how you can use the model to show $${{{{9\over12}}}}$$. Then write a fraction that is equivalent to $${{{{9\over12}}}}$$.
