    So first off, what is it in its non-simplified form?

    55 over a 100

    Exactly. Do you see something that you can divide evenly into both 55 and 100?

    Right. What is 55 / 5, and what is 100 / 5?

    what would be the simplest form of 11 over 20

  10. shadowfiend

    That is the simplest form, unless you can find something that divides evenly into both 11 and 20.

    (You won't, because 11 is prime, which means that nothing divides evenly into it except for 1 and 11, and 11 does not divide evenly into 20)

    and 10 can go into 40 and 100 so i would divide it by that right

  27. anonymous

    so it would be 4 over 10 then i would add the 1 then i would be 1 and 4 over 10

    • 5 years ago
    Best Response

    Right. That's in mixed number form. If you want an improper fraction, then 1 is the same as 10/10, so it would be 14/10.

    so 175% would be 1 and 75 over 100 and divide that bye 5 which would equal to 1 and 3 over 4 right
