## INFORMATION

We can ascertain the equivalence of two fractions using the cross-multiplication method. If the cross-products, obtained by multiplying the numerator of the first fraction with the denominator of the second fraction and the numerator of the second fraction with the denominator of the first fraction, are equal, then these fractions are equivalent. Different products would indicate that the fractions are not equivalent.
