If the numerator and denominator are multiplied by the same number, then the answer will be able to simplify into the original fraction given. That is how we know it is equivalent. $\frac{8}{17}$$\times$$\frac{2}{2}$$=$$\frac{16}{34}$ $\frac{8}{17}$$\times$$\frac{3}{3}$$=$$\frac{24}{51}$ $\frac{8}{17}$$\times$$\frac{4}{4}$$=$$\frac{32}{68}$ $\frac{8}{17}$$\times$$\frac{5}{5}$$=$$\frac{40}{85}$ $\frac{8}{17}$$\times$$\frac{6}{6}$$=$$\frac{48}{102}$
