Examples on Simplest Form

1. Find the simplest form for the fraction  $\frac{14}{30}$ ?

Step 1 :

Numerator = 14

Denominator = 30

Step 2 :

Prime factors for 4 => 2 x 2

Prime factors for 30 => 2 x 3 x 5

Step 3 :

So, the simplest form = $\frac{2}{15}$

$\frac{2}{15}$

2. Find the simplest form for the fraction $\frac{10}{24}$ ?

Step 1 :

Numerator = 10

Denominator = 24

Step 2 :

Prime factors for 4 => 2 x 5

Prime factors for 24 => 2 x 2 x 2 x 3

Step 3 :

So, the simplest form = $\frac{5}{12}$

$\frac{5}{12}$

3. A company can manufactures 1200 Computers or Laptops in 8 months. How many Computers or Laptops can they make in 2 months? Write answer in simplest form.

Step 1 :

Let say x number of Computers or Laptops are made in two months.
So  1200/x = 8/2

Step 2 :

x = (1200 . 2) / 8 = 2400/8

Step 3 :

Reduced in simplest form by multiplying and dividing by 8. We get
X = 300
