If the numerator of a fraction is a prime number can the fraction be simplified and why?

Sometimes it can. For example, 3/6 is a fraction with a prime numerator. The fraction can be simplified to 1/2.


What the top of the number of a fraction?

The top number of a fraction is the numerator. The bottom number is the denominator. In the fraction 1/5, the number 1 is the numerator, and the number 5 is the denominator.

Equivalent fraction match * * * * * Yes, if the denominator is a multiple of the numerator. For example, 7/35 = 1/5


If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are prime numbers is the fraction in simplest form and why?

Yes. If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are prime, the fraction is in simplest form. The reason is that each number has only two factors, 1 and the number itself. For that reason, it is not possible for the numerator and denominator to have any factors (other than 1) in common.

When having a fraction the composite number the numerator and a prime number the denominator is it simplest form?

You can be sure only if it is not a top heavy fraction. For example, 12/3 has a composite numerator and a prime denominator. But its simplest from is 4.


Why or why not can a fraction be simplified if the numerator is a prime number?

"7" is a prime number. But you can simplify 7/14, 7/21,/7/28, and so on. Answer: If the denominator is also a multiple of the prime number, then the fraction can be simplified; otherwise, it cannot. To simplify any fraction, the numerator and denominator must have a factor in common, as in the examples above.

No.


How do you put a fraction in to simplest form?

You put a fraction in simplest form by dividing the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor. If the either the numerator or denominator is a prime number, the fraction cannot be simplified.


How do you simplify a fraction?

To simplify a fraction, the numerator and denominator must both be divisible by the same number (factor).Divide the numerator and the denominator by their GCF (greatest common factor). For example, to simplify the fraction 14/49, divide the numerator and the denominator by 7 to obtain the simplified fraction 2/7.In the simplest form of a fraction, the numerator and denominator are relatively prime or co-prime, i.e. they have no common prime factors, their GCF is 1.
