Question:

522 over 1000 as a fraction into its simplist form


Answer:


To reduce a fraction to its simplest terms: factor the numerator and denominator, and then cancel the common factors.

522 / 1000

= (2 * 3 * 3 * 29) / (2 * 2 * 2 * 5 * 5 * 5)

= [(3 * 3 * 29) / (2 * 2 * 5 * 5 * 5)] * (2 / 2)

= [(3 * 3 * 29) / (2 * 2 * 5 * 5 * 5)] * (1)

= [(3 * 3 * 29) / (2 * 2 * 5 * 5 * 5)]

= (261) / (500)

= 261 / 500


You can check your answer with a calculator as follows:

Your original fraction:
522 / 1000 = 0.522

The fraction reduced to its simplest terms:
261 / 500 = 0.522

The decimal equivalent of both fractions is the same.

Therefore,

522 / 1000 = 261 / 500 = 0.522




>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The final answer is: 261 / 500
