Four friends were walking in a Sunny day. All are became thirsty so they went to a fruit vendor and bought a watermelon. They sliced it into four equal parts and ate it. how they shared their parts with themselves • Take a square sheet of paper and fold it into two equal parts. Colour one part of the paper Fraction of coloured portion = ½ • Now observe keenly, the fraction of coloured portion = 2/4

There is no change in the paper 1/ 2 = 2/4

Two parts become four parts and the coloured one part changed into two parts

Thus it represent both 2/4 and 1/2 are equal it is said to be equivalence.
