To figure this out, they need to have common denominators.

1/2 --> multiply the numerator and denominator by 6
1/2 = 6/12

6/12 is not equal to 7/12

therefore they are not equal

$\frac{1}{2} = \frac{1\cdot6}{2\cdot 6} = \frac{6}{12}\ \ \ \Rightarrow\ \ \ \frac{1}{2} \neq \frac{7}{12}\\\\Ans.\ \frac{1}{2}\ is\ not\ equivalent\ to\ \frac{7}{12}$
