write out all factors look for same ones in all of them 1, 2, 4, 8 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 4, 10 common factors: 1, 2
ahhh eassy. Thanks again
The common factor for those three numbers other than 1, is 2. 2 is common to all three
I'm pretty sure i wrote that? :x
Well what confused me was you had listed 3 as a factor, all be it not common, but I don't see 3 as a factor for any of those numbers.
oooo so sorry x_X EMUN i made a couple of typos look for same ones in all of them 1, 2, 4, 8 1, 2, 4 <-- here 1, 2, 5, 10 ^-- and here thanks radar
but it's still 1, 2 i got lucky :P
Can you help me with this 1/2, 3,2, 1/2. I know the common term is 1/2. But how to teach it in a simple way?
You were right, in fact I missed the last line, guess I was focused on the 3 lol
I don't think I've done common factors with fractions... actually, i was just doing it, i dont' think this is possible....whats your take radar? there are unlimited fraction pairs that can be used to obtain 1/2, 2, 3...
I agree, using fractions as factors is not normally done, usually integers when dealing with numbers.
Im not sure of this, but i do the following: Put the fraction in its simplest terms. 1/2=1*1/2 3/2=3*1/2 1/2=1*1/2 The common term is 1/2. This is the way my brain processes the problem. Again, im not sure of it. Lets try with another example. You give me one please
well in that case what is to prevent you from saying 1/2=2* 1/4, 4*1/8 etc.
right, but i can argue that 1/2 = 4/3 * 3/8 3/2 = 4/3 * 1/2 1/2 = 4/3 * 3/8 then 4/3 is also a common factor you have INFINITY pairs with fractions i think this question is invalid unless the answer is that there ISN'T one? Oo
ahhh OK. Got it. YOu mean there is not a way of finding a common factor from a fraction?
I don't believe so.
What are you studying, addition and subtracting of fractions?
But there is not an specific rule for doing this. We have to think about it first
Of course fractions have factors, but there can be lots and lots of them, you must have some purpose when factoring fractions?
the specific rule for finding common factors is first writing out all factors for each number and then seeing the common ones however, like i said before, with fractions, you have an unlimited amount of factors, you can find an unlimited amount of common factors
