Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically to reduce, we want to divide the numerator and the denominator by the same number, so lets start with 2. 252/2 = 126 1000/2 = 500 Our new fraction is 126/500. But this can be simplified farther. What is a common multiple of 126/500?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. So... starting from 252/1000. Our GCF (greatest common factor) is 4. All we need to do is divide by 4. 252/4 = 63 1000/4 = 250 Our final simplified fraction is 63/250. Hope this helps, PLEASE give me a medal.
