## How do you simplify 3/9?

EZ as pi
Featured 1 month ago

$\frac{3 \div 3}{9 \div 3} = \frac{1}{3}$

#### Explanation:

You can simplify a fraction if you multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same number.

This is the same as multiplying or dividing by $1$, which does not change the value of the fraction, but creates an equivalent fraction.

in $\frac{3}{9}$, both $3 \mathmr{and} 9$ have $3$ as a factor. Divide both by $3$

$\frac{3 \div 3}{9 \div 3} = \frac{1}{3}$

## Angel has a job finding golf balls. He is paid $3 an hour and$3.25 for any ball he finds. If he finds an average of 15 balls an hour, he earns $160.25 for one day. How many hours did he work? smendyka Featured 4 weeks ago #### Answer: See a solution process below: #### Explanation: A formula for this problem can be written as: $e = \left(p \cdot h\right) + \left(r \cdot b\right)$Where: $e$iw Angel's earnings:$160.25 for this problem.

$p$ is Angel's hourly pay rate: $3 per hour for this problem. $h$is the number of hours Angel worked: What we are solving for in this problem. $r$is the rate Angel is paid for each ball found:$3.25 for this problem.

$b$ is the number of balls found. For this problem we are told Angel found 15 balls per hour so we can write this as: $\left(\frac{15}{\text{hr}} \cdot h\right)$

Substituting and solving for $h$ gives:

$160.25 = (($3)/"hr" * h) + ($3.25 * (15/"hr" * h)) $160.25 = (($3)/"hr" * h) + ($3.25 * 15/"hr" * h)

$160.25 = (($3)/"hr" * h) + (($48.75)/"hr" * h) $160.25 = (($3)/"hr" + ($48.75)/"hr")h

$160.25 = ($51.75)/"hr"h

$160.25 xx color(red)("hr")/(color(red)($)color(blue)(51.75)) = ($51.75)/"hr"h xx color(red)("hr")/(color(blue)($)color(blue)(51.75))

color(blue)(cancel(color(black)($)))160.25 xx color(red)("hr")/(cancel(color(blue)($))color(blue)(51.75)) = color(blue)(cancel(color(black)($51.75)))/color(red)(cancel(color(black)("hr")))h xx cancel(color(red)("hr"))/cancel((color(blue)($)color(blue)(51.75)))

$\frac{160.25 \text{hr}}{\textcolor{b l u e}{51.75}} = h$

$3.1 \text{hr} = h$

Angel worked 3.1 hours rounded to the nearest tenth of an hour.

Composite means it has more than two factors
Prime means that it only has one factor that it is itself and one

Composite - 25,12,21,15
Prime- 19,41

Factors of 25
5,1,25

Factors of 12
1,2,3,4,6,12

Factors of 21
1,3,7,21

## What's the greatest common factor of 40 and 42?

Featured 1 week ago

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Find the prime factors for each number as:

$40 = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 5$

$42 = 2 \times 3 \times 7$

Now identify the common factors and determine the GCF:

$40 = \textcolor{red}{2} \times 2 \times 2 \times 5$

$42 = \textcolor{red}{2} \times 3 \times 7$

Therefore:

$\text{GCF} = \textcolor{red}{2}$

## What is the lowest common multiple of 12,18 and 45?

David Drayer

180

#### Explanation:

Find the unique prime factors for each number and multiply the factors together.

$12 = 2 \times 2 \times 3$
$18 = 2 \times 3 \times 3$
$45 = 5 \times 3 \times 3$

There are two factors of 2 needed ( the factor of 2 for 18 is a repeat.)

There are two factors of 3 needed ( the factors of 3 in 12 and 45 are repeats.)

There is one unique factor of 5

Multiplying the non repeated or unique factors gives.

The Least Common Multiply $= 2 \times 2 \times 3 \times 3 \times 5$

$2 \times 2 \times 3 \times 3 \times 5 = 180$
