^What he said... I actually find multiplying fractions a lot less tricky than adding or subtracting them.

zugzwangBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Well, it must be 3/6... But you can do better than that~ Lowest terms...?

Yes. Let's have another one: \[\frac{4}{3}\times\frac{9}{4}\]

twitchBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but how would i continue if both of there lowest terms are 2

zugzwangBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
2? How do you figure 2?

twitchBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
well if you do 36>18>9>3>1 12>6>>2 oh i see

zugzwangBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
NO... Remember that in the end, fractions are just compact division: \[\large \frac{a}{b}=a \div b\] So what is 36 divided by 12?

And there is your answer.

twitchBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so the answer is flat out 3
 one year ago

zugzwangBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes. Remember that this can happen. Anyway, a whole number is technically a fraction with a denominator of 1, in lowest terms.
