Hi xgamer! I'm looking at it, just give me a moment:)
is he right?
So, all you need to do to write 15:24 in lowest terms is simplify it just the way you would simplify fractions.
ok so c is right?
No, that one isn't it. Would you like me to walk you through simplifying?
So how is C. not right
Ok, so to simplify a ratio is just the same as simplifying a fraction. To simplify a proper fraction, you take the greatest common factor of the numerator and denominator, or in this case, both numbers of the ratio.
Do you know what the GCF of 15 and 24 is?
not really im horible at this stuff
Well the GCF just means the biggest factor that both numbers have. So let's look at the factors of both numbers: 15: 1, 3, 5, 15 24: 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 12, 24 Do you see a common factor in both lists?
In other words, do you see a factor that both numbers have?
3 and 1
Great:) So we already know that 3 is the bigger one, so now we divide the two numbers by 3: 15/3 24/3
5 and 8 i got
Exactly! Yes, that is the correct answer:)
ready for next 3?
Sure:) please open another question for it:)
