2. Surely not 3, since it does not appear in both top and bottom

8/15 * 5/16 = 8*5 / 15*16 = 40/240

Now, 2 can be factored out to give 20/120, but that is not fully simplified

Same for 5 and 8, done individually. However, if 5 and 8 are both factored out, the resulting 1/6 is as simple as it can be.

Not sure how far to take this problem down. The directions say to simplify using the distributive property. 4(x + 1) -2 divided by 2. Would it be 4x +4 -2 divided by 2 or 4x + 2 divided by 2 or 2x +1? Thanks..
