### Hint

### Hint

Think benchmark fractions.

### Answer

### Answer

2/4 = 3/6 = 9/18

1/3 = nope

1/4 = 2/8 = 9/36 yay

2/3 = nope

3/4 = 6/8 = 9/12 yay

1/3 = nope

1/4 = 2/8 = 9/36 yay

2/3 = nope

3/4 = 6/8 = 9/12 yay

Am I correct that the two 1/2 options with 5/10 would not work based on the instructions?

Hi Jenny,

You’re correct based on the directions because 10 contains a zero. An equivalence of half could be used, just not if it’s expressed as 1/2.

I was just looking at that – I think the instructions should say 0 through 9. I was also wondering about 1/2=3/6=4/8, there is no two digit denominator unless a student uses zero in the tens place.

Thanks Tamara. I updated the answer to remove the one that had a 0 in it.
