You can get Equivalent Ratios by following two ways :
1) By Multiplication Method
By multiplying, both numerator and denominator of the given ratios by the same number, Equivalent Ratios can be obtained.
e.g. Equivalent Ratios of 2 : 3 are
(2 × 2) : (3 × 2) = 4 : 6
(2 × 5) : (3 × 5) = 10 : 15
(2 × 10) : (3 × 10) 20 : 30
(2 × 7) : (3 × 7) = 14 : 21
So, Equivalent Ratios of 2 : 3 are
4 : 3
10 : 15
20 : 30
14 : 21
.
2) By Division Method
By dividing, both numerator and denominator of the given ratios by the same number, Equivalent Ratios can be obtained.
e.g. Equivalent Ratios of 18 : 48 are
(18÷2) : (48÷2) = 9 : 24
(18÷6) : (48÷6) = 3 : 8
(18÷3) : (48÷3) = 6 : 16
So, Equivalent Ratios of 18 : 48 are
9 : 24
3 : 8
6 : 16
