If a fraction's numerator and denominator have no factors other than one in common can the fraction be simplified?

If a fraction's numerator and denominator have no factors other than one in common, the fraction cannot be simplified except if the denominator is 1, in which case the fraction can be simplified to the whole number of the numerator.


How do you figure simplest forms of fractions?

If the numerator and denominator of a fraction have a common factor (except for '1'), divide both numerator and denominator by their common factor. The fraction is in the simplest form when the numerator and denominator have no common factors.


How can a fraction be simplified if the numerator and denominator have no factors other than one?

If the numerator and the denominator have no common factors other than one, the fraction is already in its simplest form.


What is a fraction that has no common factors in the numerator or the denominator?

What is 3 over 35 in simplest form?

3/35 is the simplest form. Why? Numerator factors: 3. Denominator factors: 5 and 7. None of the numerator and denominator factors are the same and therefore cannot cancel each other out.


When multiplying use fraction notification we form products in the numerator and the denominator but do not immediatily calculate the product?

That is correct. It is easier to simplify the fraction before multiplying all the factors in the numerator and the denominator.That is correct.

What is 18 over 56 in simple form?

Fractions can be simplified when the numerator and denominator have a common factor in them. If both the numerator and denominator have common factors, then we can cancel these factors out. So the simplest for of 18/56 is 9/28.


How are rational numbers multiplied?

The simple way: multiply the numerators to get the numerator, multiply the denominators to get the denominator. To get the preferred answer cancel common factors in the new numerator and denominator. But this can be tricky.
