Main problem

Here are some more pairs of fractions for you to try.

If you are working with others you may wish to tackle examples separately and then compare approaches and conclusions.

You may like to print and cut out the pairs of fractions as cards, so that they may be attempted in any order.

\(\dfrac{4x}{7}\) and \(\dfrac{9}{14}\)

\(\dfrac{5}{9}\) and \(\dfrac{2x}{12}\)

\(\dfrac{3x}{4}+1\) and \(\dfrac{x}{4}+3\)
