    Yes.....Lovely but yes, the 4x Vs the 4X 4/4 debate.......Very wholesome........I may try and edit..Or use for discussion "can you spot the deliberate mistake"......

    Confusing. When changing a fraction to an equivalent fraction we might multiply by 2/2 or 3/3 NOT by 2 or 3. The way these worksheets are designed I feel will cause misconceptions and inaccuracies. Apart from this they are great but for me, sadly unusable.
