Write to explain how Monty can use the number line to find an equivalent fraction with a denominator greater than 6

Accepted Solution

Monty can, first, break his number line into smaller pieces, and then he can see which fractions are at the same point on the number line. For example, if he is looking for and equivalent fraction for 3/4, he can break them number line into 12 pieces and label the fractions. He would then see that 9/12 and 3/4 are at the point on the number line which means they are equivalent fractions.
