Imagine these paper circles as pizzas. You can see that one divided by four of a pizza is the same as two divided by eight of a pizza, and also the same as four divided by 16 of a pizza.

Figure shows three paper circles. The first has a quarter section cut out of it and is labelling “one quarter pizza,” the second has two one-eights sections cut out of it and is labelling “two-eights pizza, and the third has four one sixteenths pizza.” The amounts cut out are equivalent to each other so the figure shows that one quarter is the same as two eighths which is the same as four sixteenths.
