# The basic property of fraction

Multiplying the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same non-zero number, the results of the new fraction is said to be **equivalent** to the original fraction. Dividing the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same non-zero number will also yield an **equivalent** fraction. The word *equivalent* means that the two fractions have the same value.

For example:

2 | = | 2·2 | = | 4 | ; |

3 | 3·2 | 6 |

or

6 | = | 6:2 | = | 3 | . |

8 | 8:2 | 4 |
