Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

By fraction I understand that the numerator and denominator are both integers. The way to simplify it by hand is to look for the greatest common divisor of the numerator and denominator and simplify by it.

For example 15/27=(3x5)/(3x9). The greatest common divisor of 15 and 27 is 3. Simplifying by 3, you get 5/9

- Make sure you're working with two fractions.
- Multiply numerator x numerator, then multiply denominator x denominator.

- Make sure you're working with two fractions
- Flip the second fraction upside down.
- Change the division sign into a multiplication sign.
- Multiply top x top and bottom x bottom.

- Convert mixed numbers into improper fractions.
- Take the whole (non-fraction) number and multiply it by the denominator.
- Add that answer to the numerator.
- Put that amount over the original denominator and you will have an improper fraction.

- Find the lowest common denominator (bottom number). For both adding and subtracting fractions, you'll start with the same process.
- Multiply fractions to match the lowest common denominator.
- Add or subtract the two numerators (top number) but NOT the denominators.

This answer is correct. 4/12 divided by 2/2= 1/3

The reciprocal of 2/2 is 2/2

Then you multiply straight across and reduce to get 1/3

The denominator is that number on the bottom of a fraction, so with 2 different fractions you want to get them in a form where they have the same denominator. Often you will be trying to find the lowest common denominator.

The usual procedure is to multiply one denominator into the top (numerator) of the other fraction. Then repeat this process with the denominator of the second fraction multiplied into the numerator of the first fraction. Then multiply the 2 denominators together and the result is the denominator now of both fractions.

Eg 2/3 and 5/7 become

14/21 and 15/21

Sometimes further simplification is possible where one fraction has a denominator which is a mltiple of the other. eg

2/3 and 5/6

In this case you only need to multiply on the first fraction

4/6 and 5/6

You have to be careful. 80% is in fact 0.8.

Turn the calculator ON.

Enter the number 0.8

If your calculator is set to Write-View you will see the number displayed as a stacked fraction 4/5. If it is already in this form, press the key marked**change** with two arrows. The display should show a fraction.

If your calculator is set to LINE, you will see 4r5, where 4 is the numerator and 5 is the denominator.

**The key marked change allows you to change displayed result from decimal to fraction and from fraction to decimal. When a number is converted to a fraction, it will always be a fraction reduced to its simplest terms.**

- divide the top of the fraction by the bottom
- Then multiply the result by 100
- add a percent sign to the answer so people know it is a percentage (i.e. per 100)

- e.g. 3/5 *100 = 0.6 * 100 = 60%

follow these steps:

- find a number that you can multiple the bottom of the fraction by to get 100
- multiple both top and bottom of the fraction by that number
- write down just the top number with the % sign added to the end

- e.g. 3/5 as a percentage

- we can multiply 5 x 20 to get 100
- multiple top and bottom by 20 = (3*20)/(5*20) = 60/100 = 60%

I hope this helps and good luck! If you have more questions - ask away! Please take the time to rate this answer.

Transforming 0.175 to fraction:

= 175/1,000

Reduce to lowest term (divide by 5 both the numerator and the denominator):

= 35/200

Reduce further by dividing both by 5:

= 7/40

This is the lowest terms now that it can't be reduced further.

The "Other" way round, Bottom number into ONE and multiply it by the Top. EG: 3/4 == 1 divided by 4 = 0.25, now we multiply, .25 by the Top number or in this case 3, that equals 0.75. 1/4 =0.25 x 3 = .75. 3/4 is the same as 0.75.

= 175/1,000

Reduce to lowest term (divide by 5 both the numerator and the denominator):

= 35/200

Reduce further by dividing both by 5:

= 7/40

This is the lowest terms now that it can't be reduced further.

The "Other" way round, Bottom number into ONE and multiply it by the Top. EG: 3/4 == 1 divided by 4 = 0.25, now we multiply, .25 by the Top number or in this case 3, that equals 0.75. 1/4 =0.25 x 3 = .75. 3/4 is the same as 0.75.

If your calculator is configured to be in MthIO, the fraction that is displayed is always reduced to its simplest form. (The denominator is the smallest possible.)

If you are adding fractions, the result is also a fraction in its reduced form.

If you want to convert a fraction to a decimal number, press the [S<=>D] key.

To set MthIO: Press [SHIFT][MODE] (SetUp) and select [1:MthIO]

To set LineIO: Press [SHIFT][MODE](SetUp) and select [2:LineIO]

In LineIO, all results are expressed in decimal format.

If you are adding fractions, the result is also a fraction in its reduced form.

Hello,

This fraction is already reduced to its simplest form because 61 is a prime number: a number that can only be divided by itself and by 1.

Hope it clarifies things.
