What Are Equivalent Proportions? Before we understand what, equivalent proportions are, we need to understand what proportions are. It is a quantitative relationship of a category and the total and is an equation. When developing the concept of proportions, you will come across the term 'equivalent proportions.'

To find equivalent proportions, you can use the method of cross-multiplication.
