The question:

(Sydney)


104 over 200


The answer:

104 over 200

= 104 ÷ 200

= 104/200


Factor the numerator and denominator

= (2*2*2*13)/(2*2*2*25)


Cancel common factors which appear in both the numerator and denominator

= (13/25)*[(2*2*2)/(2*2*2)]

= (13/25)*1

= 13/25

The final answer is: 13/25



Check the answer with a calculator by calculating the decimal equivalent:

Original fraction

104/200 = 0.52


Simplest Form

13/25 = 0.52
