Numerator = Top part, Denominator = Bottom part of  the fraction

Multiply numerator and denominator with a number such that denominator becomes LCM of all the denominators.

Example,  2/3 , 4/7, 1/9

Step1) Take LCM of all the denominator, ie 3,7 and 9.  LCM= 63

Step2) Divide 63 by all the denominators and multiply the result with its corresponding numerator

 63/3 = 21 => 2*21 =42

63/7=9 => 4*9=36

63/9=7=>  1*7=7

So the Equivalent fractions are

42/63 ,  36/63 and 7/63
