## anonymous 5 years ago can someone show me the work involved in reducing 75/10,000?

1. anonymous

divide top and bottom by 25

2. anonymous

25 is the common factor

3. anonymous

3/400

4. anonymous

First you have to find the common devider between 75 and 10,000 which 25 so, ${75 \over 10000}*{25 \over 25} = {3 \over 400}$

Thank you..I got that far but I have to then divide 3 by 400 & the answer I come up with is not the same as the answer in the books answer key. The book says answer should be 0.08 & I come up w/ 0.0075

6. anonymous

are yu sure yu are looking at the right ansswer?

7. anonymous

0.0075 can be rounded to 0.008 but 0.08 :S

8. anonymous

yes

9. anonymous

maybe there was a type and they meant 0.008 instead, cause 0.0075 can be rounded as @uzma said

10. anonymous

typo*

11. anonymous
