Josh has 16 chocolates and he gave 7 of them to Ashley. Choose a fraction that is equivalent to the fraction of the chocolates left with Josh. a. $\frac{19}{33}$ b. $\frac{32}{18}$ c. $\frac{18}{32}$ d. None of the above

#### Solution:

The number of chocolates left with Josh = 16 - 7 = 9

The fraction of the chocolates left with Josh = Remaining chocolatesTotal chocolates = 9 / 16

The equivalent fraction for this is, 9×216×2 = 18 / 32
[Multiply numerator and denominator by same non-zero number.]

The equivalent fraction is 18 / 32.
