I am working on reducing fractions. How do I find the answer to 12 over 8?

  • Math 5th grade -

    12 divided by 4
    8 divided by 4
    Answer: 3/2

  • Math 5th grade -

    correct
    12/8
    4 is common in nominator and denominator
    so
    =4x3/4x2
    =3/2 (4/4=1) any thing multiply by 1 is the same answer

    3/2 FINAL ANSWER
