Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

To convert a fraction to lowest terms, we must divide the numerator (the top number) and the denominator (the bottom number) by a common number until we can't reduce it any more. A method for doing this is to factor the numerator and denominator by their common factors.

So let's factor 711 and 22.

1 x 711

9 x 79

3 x 3 x 79

I don't think I can factor 79. We should check the numbers from 2 up to the square root of 79, or approximately 9.

Factoring 22,

1 x 22

2 x 11

Unfortunately, none of the factors of 711 are common with the factors of 22, so it is already in its lowest terms, and cannot be reduced.

Good luck,

Paul

180/900 is 1/5 in the lowest terms.

Divide both 180 and 900 by 180. 180 divided by 180 is 1, 900 divided by 180 is 5. This gives 1/5.

1/7 is 2/14. 2/14+5/14 is 7/14, which is 1/2 in lowest terms.

(4 1/3) / (1 2/3) = (make the two numbers proper fractions)

(13 / 3) / (5 / 3) = (the "/ 3" on the left and right cancel out each others)

13 / 5 = (go to lowest term)

2 3/5

(13 / 3) / (5 / 3) = (the "/ 3" on the left and right cancel out each others)

13 / 5 = (go to lowest term)

2 3/5

Hmmm ... 15/60

Since 60 can be divided evenly by 15, then let's start there:

15 divided by 15 is equal to 1. (correct?)

60 divided by 15 is equal to 4. (correct?)

Then:

15/60 =

(by the way, the common divisor is 15)
