Homework Help: Math

Posted by Angie on Saturday, May 9, 2009 at 6:25pm.

How do you simplify 5/12? I know you have to multiply the denominator,12, by a radical to make a perfect square..

I think you're supposed to multiply it by 12? But there seems to be other numbers multiplied by 12 that can make a perfect square too, but 12's the first one I thought of. So then I got
144, which equals 12. Is this right? What do I do next?
