    125 = 5 x 5 x 5 where x is multiply (not a variable) 1000 = 2 x 2 x2 x 5 x 5 x 5

    So, the next procedure is to divide out like factors. 5 x 5 x 5 all over 2 x 2 x2 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 1 /( 2 x 2 x2) = 1 / 8

    Look and see if the answer makes sense. If not, I can draw it out. BTW, if you are in college or some other learning place, there's most likely a tutoring service that is free. That is, face-to-face.

    8/9. 8 and 9 have no common factors other than 1. There's nothing to divide out. 8/9 is already in lowest terms.
