Equivalent Ratios: If two ratios have the same value when simplified, then they are called Equivalent Ratios. Thus, 3: 2 is equivalent to 6: 4 or 12: 8.
Notes
Equivalent ratio:

If two ratios have the same value when simplified, then they are called Equivalent Ratios.

Two ratios are equivalent if the fractions corresponding to them are equivalent.

Equivalent Ratios can be obtained by multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number.

For Example,
Give two equivalent ratios of 6: 4.Ratio 6: 4 = `6/4 = (6 × 2)/(4 × 2) = 12/8`.
Therefore, 12: 8 is an equivalent ratio of 6: 4
Similarly,
Ratio 6: 4 = `6/4 = (6 × 2)/(4 × 2) = 3/2`
So, 3: 2 is another equivalent ratio of 6: 4.
Example
Fill in the following blanks:
14  =  =  6  
21  3 
[Are these equivalent ratios?]
`14/21 = (7 xx 2)/(7 xx 3) = 2/3`.
`2/3 = (2 xx 3)/(3 xx 3) = 6/9`
Therefore, 2, 9 will come in the blanks respectively.
Yes, all these are equivalent ratios.
