Multiply

An equivalent fraction is equal to 1 such as

An equivalent fraction is the same as multiplying by

so the ratio does not change.

This fraction would be equal to

Hence an example would be that

The key to division of fractions is to reciprocate the divisor (what comes after the division sign) and change the division sign to multiplication.

In this case, we have a mixed fraction so we change it to an improper fraction first.

How do we do that?

Simple!

Take the **denominator** of the mixed fraction, **multiply** it by the **whole number** and **add the numerator.**

Whatever value you get becomes the numerator of the improper fraction over the denominator of the mixed fraction.

So for

#(6*1)+2#

#6+2#

#8#

So our numerator is

Back to our question;

#1(2)/6-:1/3#

#4/3-:1/3#

Reciprocate

#4/3xx3/1#

Multiply the numerators and the denominators.

#12/3#

Reduce the fraction if possible

#=(4xxcancel(3))/cancel3#

If the denominators are the same just divide the numerators.

A fraction consists of

Using the allocated names we have:

Consider whole numbers. For example 6 and 3

These can, and may, be written as

Now consider

8

The lowest common multiple is the lowest number which is a multiple of both numbers.

Since 8 * 1 = 8 and 2 * 4 = 8, 8 is the lowest common multiple.

An easy way to find the LCM is to list all multiples of each number, up to the product of both numbers (in this case, 16).

For 2:

- 2, 4, 6, **8,** 10, 12, 14, 16

For 8:

- **8,** 16,

8 is the lowest number they both have in common.

The highest possible value of an LCM is both numbers multiplied by each other. This is why for both lists i stopped at 16, because

2*8 = 16

Please see below.

A fraction, say **equal** parts, of whom

For example, in the figure below, shows a full bar divided into

Let us consider a simple example, say

What if we had divided the object in

Although it is

What if we had divided the same in

Hence one can say that

Similarly dividing by

It is quite obvious that

Also observe that in this case we are just multiplying **numerator** and **denominator** same number (in above case

Now without actually drawing these figures consider

Because

Hence multiplying or dividing both numerator and denominator, make an equivalent fraction.

The **greatest common factor** (GCF) is the largest number by which both numbers are divisible, and the **least common multiple** is the smallest number that is equal to either number multiplied by an integer.

The GCF must divide both numbers, so it must be a product of two or more factors belonging to both numbers at the same time. It turns out that these factors are *all* prime numbers.

The prime factorization of

The prime factorization of

I've highlighted the common factors. Therefore, the **GCF** is

The LCM can be found by looking at the above prime factorization and multiplying together the factors unique to each number.

#2 xx 2 " "color(white)(........) xx 3 xx color(green)(7)#

#color(green)(2 xx 2 xx 2 xx 2 xx 3)#

Since the

#2 xx 2 xx 2 xx 2 xx 3 xx 7 = 336#

The LCM of

#336/84 = 4#

#336/48 = 7#

Yeah, it's a multiple of both numbers. Also, neither factor after dividing by
