# How do you simplify rational numbers?

Jan 11, 2015

Here let me give you a quick example.

Reduce the rational number $\frac{841}{58}$

So common factors on the top and the bottom are 29.

so THE RATIONAL NUMBER CAN BE REWRITTEN LIKE THIS
$\left[\frac{\left(29\right) \left(29\right)}{\left(29\right) \left(2\right)}\right]$
So we can write the same rational number as $\frac{29}{2}$
