What is 3/8 in simplest form

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

The simplest form of 3/8 is 3/8 because the greatest commondivisor of 3 and 8 is 1.

To simplify the fraction 3/8, we need to find the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator (3) and the denominator (8) and then divide both the numerator and denominator by the GCD.

The divisors of 3 are {1, 3}, and the divisors of 8 are {1, 2, 4, 8}.

The GCD of 3 and 8 is 1, as it is the largest number that divides both 3 and 8 without any remainder.

Dividing both 3 and 8 by the GCD (which is 1) doesn't change their values:

(3 ÷ 1) / (8 ÷ 1)

= 3/8

Since the GCD is 1, the fraction 3/8 is already in its simplest form.

Hence, the simplest form of 3/8 is 3/8.

ok so find the median so put the numbers in order so 82,83,84,85,85,86,86,86,87,87,88,89,90
then start from both sides cross off from both dies at the same time 
83,84,85,85,86,86,86,87,87,88,89

84,85,85,86,86,86,87,87,88

85,85,86,86,86,87,87

85,86,86,86,87

85,86,86,86

so... 86 is the answer. i know its long but its the whole work hope it helped.

50 POINTS!!!!A company makes cylindrical cans for peaches. Each can has a radius of 4 centimeters and a height of 12 centimeters. The company plans to increase the
volume of each can by 25%.

a) What will be the height of the new can if the radius remains the same?

b) What will be the radius of the new can if the height remains the same?

*Please show your work*

Answers

Volume = πr²h

V = π × 4² × 12
V = π × 16 × 12
V = 192π

Original Volume = 192
π 

25% = 0.25
0.25 × 192 = 48

New Volume = Old Volume + 25% Old Volume
New Volume = 192π + 48π
New Volume = 240π

25% = 0.25
12 × 0.25 = 3

New Height = Old Height + 25% Old Height
New Height = 12 + 3
New Height = 15

V = πr²h
240π = π × r² × 15
240 = 15r²
16 = r²
√16 = √r²
4 = r

New Radius = 4
25% as a decimal is 0.25
multiply 12 and 0.25  12 X 0.25 = 3
add 2 and 3 2+3=5

So that makes the new height 15

the new radius is 4:46

Draw a line with the given slope through the given point.

(-4,1) slope=3/5

Answers

I can't put. Graph out but I can give you points. Since it says 3/5 you must go up three and over five(my teacher likes to call it the rise/run method). So here are the points

(1,4)

(6,7)

And the point you already gave, (-4,1). Hope this helped!
