# How do you express 3/4, 7/16, and 5/8 with the LCD?

Jul 29, 2016

$\frac{12}{16}$, $\frac{7}{16}$ and $\frac{10}{16}$

#### Explanation:

As among the three denominators $4$, $16$ and $8$, $16$ is divisible by other two,

$16$ is the LCD. Further as $16 = 4 \times 4 = 8 \times 2$

$\frac{3}{4}$, $\frac{7}{16}$ and $\frac{5}{8}$ can be written as

$\frac{3 \times 4}{4 \times 4}$, $\frac{7}{16}$ and $\frac{5 \times 2}{8 \times 2}$ i.e.

$\frac{12}{16}$, $\frac{7}{16}$ and $\frac{10}{16}$
