User: What is the fraction of 0.75 if you do it in simplest form?

Weegy: Fractions can be simplified when the numerator and denominator have a common factor in them. If both the numerator and denominator have common factors, then we can cancel these factors out. [ For example, in the fraction 8/12, 4 is a common factor of both 8 and 12. Since this is the case, we can simplify the fraction by canceling the 4 from both the numerator and denominator of the fraction. Canceling is equivalent to dividing both the numerator and denominator by the same number. is the same as The key to simplifying a fraction is to find all the common factors between the numerator and denominator and to eliminate them. The easiest way to be sure you have eliminated all the common factors of the numerator and denominator is to find the prime factors of each and then cancel them out. To simplify a fraction, you should follow four steps: 1. Write the prime factorization of both the numerator and denominator. (The process for finding prime factors was explained in the previous section). 2. Rewrite the fraction so that the numerator and denominator are written as the product of their prime factors. 3. Cancel out any common prime factors. 4. Multiply together any remaining factors in the numerator and denominator. Let's look at an example of this entire process: Example Find the simplest form of the fraction 10/24. The simplest form of 10/24 is 5/12. Let's work through the steps for doing this. 1. Write the prime factorization of both the numerator and denominator. * The prime factors of 10 are 2 and 5. * The prime factors of 24 are 2, 2, 2, and 3. 2. Rewrite the fraction so that the numerator and denominator are written as the product of their prime factors. 3. Cancel out any common prime factors. We can cancel out a 2 from both the numerator and the denominator. 4. Multiply together any remaining factors in the numerator and denominator. The fraction 10/24 can be simplified to 5/12. As we can see, finding prime factors is important for simplifying fractions. ]

why is the gold get cheaper when the dollar goes down?
Weegy: The reason that gold and the dollar generally trend in opposite directions is that in one respect gold is just another currency. It is no longer money in the true meaning of the word, but it tends to trade as if it were. [ As a result, when the dollar weakens on the foreign exchange market over an extended period then the US$ gold price will generally rise during the same period; and when the dollar strengthens over many months the US$ gold price will usually fall. ] (More)
