Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, anytime you have stuff with lots of zeros at the end, you can just chop off the zeros: 100/100 = 1 10/1,000 = 1/100 1,000,000/1,000 = 1,000/1 etc. Now, let's say we have 20,000/85,000 .... this reduces to 20/85. Now just reduce 20/85 by factoring and canceling like factors. :) From this, can you see where to go with your prob?
