Explanation A. Adding 2

If we start with: 1/2

And add 2 to the numerator and the denominator, we get: 3/4

3/4 is NOT equivalent to 1/2

Statement A is NOT true

------------------------------

B. Multiplying by 5

If we start with: x/y

And multiply the numerator and the denominator by 5, we get: 5x/5y

Since 5x/5y and x/y are equivalent fractions, statement B is TRUE

-------------------------------------------

C. Dividing by 100

If we start with: x/y

And divide the numerator and the denominator by 100, we get: (x/100)/(y/100)

(x/100)/(y/100) = (x/100)(100/y) = 100x/100y

Since 100x/100y and x/y are equivalent fractions, statement C is TRUE

Answer: B & C

Cheers,

Brent
