    Fraction Read Aloud  Click on the image of the book to hear the story! How is 8/10 the same fraction as 4/5? Simple, any fraction divided by 1 is still that same fraction because of the identity property. (Any number, including fractions, when mutliplied or divided by 1 is still that same number). We just write the whole number 1 as a fraction (disguise the 1 whole as a fraction like 2/2, 3/3 or 4/4 etc.) So 8/10 divided by 2/2 = 4/5 and that is why 8/10 is equivalent to 4/5 and 4/5 x 2/2 = 8/10.
