Finding the missing number-Visual Understanding.

Finding the missing number-Mathematical Understanding.

- Checking if two fractions are equivalent

Equivalent fractions represent the **same** **value**, but they don’t look the same.

Click here to learn more about equivalent fractions.

To find the missing part, we’ll understand it both **visually** & **mathematically**.

We have divided the learning into 3 types based on questions.

Type #1: Multiplication Method.

Type #2: Division Method.

Type #3: MnD Method.

When two fractions are equivalent, we can easily find the missing number just by identifying the multiplication factor.

The above learning strengthens the **visual understanding** of a concept.

Now let’s discuss how to mathematically work it out.

We’ll go through **visualisation** to understand how to find the missing number and how two wholes are equivalently connected.

We can find the missing number **mathematically** just by finding the division factor.

Follow the steps to make it easier to implement.

Step #1: Check the given parts. It could be both numerators known or both denominators known. We’ll surely have 3 numbers known out of four.

Step #2: Try identifying the division factor.

Step #3: Use the same factor to find the missing number.

**DnM** Method is **Divide and Multiply** Method. We also call it the multi-step method.

We get two fractions that do not directly show any relationship to find the missing number.

**Remember: **We always Divide and then Multiply.

To remember the same, use the mnemonic
Dear Mum

Dear starts with D stands for Divide.

Mum starts with M stands for Multiply.
