You divide the top number by the bottom number, so if the fraction was 5/15s, it could simplify to 1/3.
The number 38 is not a fraction; it is a whole number. I could make it into a fraction if I wanted to. For example, it could be transformed into 76/2 or 380/10 or endless other variations all of which simplify to 38.
You find a common number that they could BOTH be divided by(6 and 16 can divided by 2.The fraction in now 3/8.)But if it still is in simplest form,divide it again by a number.
3296 is a single number and it cannot be simplified.
Answer: Yes, it usually counts as incorrect if you don't simplify a fraction. You must simplify a fraction unless it specifically tells you not to. Answer: For example, it looks a little awkward to have the final result of a problem as 144/288, when you could just as well write it as the equivalent 1/2.
114/100. We could then simplify this to 57/50.
As far as simplify meaning finding a smaller denominator, the answer is no. The only common factor between 19 and 15 is 1, so the fraction cannot be reduced, but it is an improper fraction, so you could turn it into a mixed number: 19/15 = 1 4/15.
I'm not sure what you mean by "mixed fractions." A mixed number is a whole number with a fraction. You could convert that to an improper fraction and simplify it, but the result will be the same as if you just ignore the whole number and simplify the fraction. For example, 1 and 6/8 = 14/8 = 7/4 = 1 and 3/4. Ignoring the 1, 6/8 simplifies to 3/4. Just make sure to put the whole number back when you're done. If you don't know how to simplify a fraction, find the GCF of the numerator and the denominator and divide them by it. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is already in its simplest form. If you don't know how to find a GCF, that question has been answered many times and should be easy to find.
The fraction is already in its simplest form. However you could also write it as 0.31061599
It is 12 75/100. You could simplify the fraction but then you would lose information about its precision and also end up with an awkward fraction.
0.5 is spoken as "five tenths," which means five out of 10. You could write your fraction as 5/10, but then you would have to simplify it. To simplify, find the largest number that you can divide both the numerator and the denominator by evenly. In this case that number is 5, because you can evenly divide both 5 and 10 by 5. Once you do that you're left with 1/2, which is your simplified fraction form of 0.5.
It is the first whole number divided by the denominator of the unit fraction. This could be a whole number or a fraction.
