What is prime factorization in fractions?

You use a factor tree, for the 2 denominators. Yes that is correct the answer on the top but it says 2 denominators. This is the real correct way To do Prime Factorization in fractions first prime factorization the numerator and then the denominator. then put the prime factorization of the numerator on top and put the prime factorization of the denominator on the bottom like fractions.

What is the prime factorization of both the numerator and the denominator of the fraction?

Take 30/42, for example. The prime factorization of the numerator (30) is 2 x 3 x 5. The prime factorization of the denominator (42) is 2 x 3 x 7. This will help you find the GCF or the LCM.

When reducing a fraction using prime factorization of the over the factorization of the denominator?

When reducing a fraction, find the GCF of the numerator and denominator and divide them both by it. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is already in its simplest form.

What is the prime factorization of both numerator and denominator 875 over 1000?

875 = 53*7 1000 = 23*53

How can you use prime factorization to write a fraction in simplest form?

The idea is to divide numerator and denominator of a fraction by any common factors. Prime factorization is simply used to find all possible factors.

2/2

It is 2/3.

If the numerator of a fraction is a prime number can the fraction be simplied?

Yes, if the denominator is a multiple of the numerator. No, if not.

Can a denominator that is a prime number be simplified?

Only in improper fractions where the numerator is a multiple of the denominator.

How do you know that a fraction is in its lowest term?

When you can no longer find the a common factor between the numerator and the denominator. This can be done by prime factorization (easy to understand, but laborious), or by Euclid's Algorithm, which is much faster (especially for larger numbers).
