Multiple (LCM) for the denominators of the fractions below. 

1⁄2 and 3⁄5 LCM = 10 5/10 and 6/10

3⁄5 and 7⁄10 LCM = 10 6/10 and 7/10 

3⁄4 and 1⁄2 LCM = 4 3/4 and 2/4 
6⁄7 and 4⁄5 LCM = 35 30/35 and 28/35 

1⁄3 and 2⁄5 LCM = 15 5/15 and 6/15 
3⁄8 and 1⁄3 LCM = 24 9/24 and 8/24 

2⁄6 and 1⁄4 LCM = 12 4/12 and 3/12

The various resources listed below are aligned to the same standard, (4NF01) taken from the CCSM (Common Core Standards For Mathematics) as the Fractions Worksheet shown above.
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n x a)/(n x b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
