    Multiply 1/4 by (1)

    (3/3) = 1

    1/4 (3/3) = 3/12

    Yes, they are the same

    If we multiply both numerator and denominator of 1/4 by 3 , then we get 3/12 !!!

    Dude 1 over 4 means 1 over 4.  You have one on top and four on bottom.  3 over 12 means 3 over 12.  You have three on top and twelve on bottom.  They do not mean the same thing!

    Yes, 1/4 is the simplified form of 3/12

    YES!!! 

    If you take 3/12 and cancel down by '3' you have '1/4'

    More correctly 1/4 is NOT equal to 3/12 , but 1/4 is EQUIVALENT to '3/12'.

    If you reduce the fraction 3/12 all the way, it comes out to 1/4, so yes.
