Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One way multiply the numbers on the top 4*3 = 12 multiply the numbers on the bottom 5*20 = 100 This gives 12/100 The greatest common factor or the biggest number we can divide 12 and 20 is 4 so 12 divided by 4 = 3 and 100 divided by 4 is 25 This fraction reduces to 4/25 Does that work for you?
