### Detailed calculations and explanations, under

### Common breaks. introduction

#### The fraction consists of two numbers and the fraction bar: ^{55}/_{996}

#### The number above the fraction line is the numerator: 55

#### The number under the fraction line is the denominator: 996

#### The fraction line means that the two numbers share.

#### To get the value of the fraction, divide the numerator by the denominator:

Value = 55 ÷ 996

### To shorten a fraction:

divide the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor, gcd

#### To calculate the greatest common factor, gcd:

#### 1. Break down the numerator and denominator into prime numbers.

#### 2. Multiply all common prime numbers by the lowest powers.

### Break down the numerator and denominator into prime numbers:

#### Prime a number: Find the prime numbers that multiply to that number.

#### 55 = 5 × 11;

55 is a composite number;

#### Notation with exponents (powers):

996 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 83 = 2^{2} × 3 × 83;

996 is a composite number;

** The numbers that are only divided by themselves and by 1 are called prime numbers. *

* A composite number is an integer that has at least one factor other than 1 and itself.

* A composite number is an integer that has at least one factor other than 1 and itself.

### Calculate the greatest common factor, gcd:

#### Multiply all common prime numbers by the lowest powers.

#### However, the numerator and denominator have no common factors.

#### gcd (5 × 11; 2nd^{2} × 3 × 83) = 1

#### >> Calculate the greatest common factor, gcd, online calculator

### The numerator and denominator of the fraction are coprime numbers (no common divisors, gcd = 1), the fraction cannot be reduced: irreducible fraction.

#### fracture ^{55}/_{996} is positive real fractions (numerator < nenner).="">

### Rewrite the fraction:

### As a decimal number:

^{55}/_{996} =

#### 55 ÷ 996 =

#### 0,055220883534 ≈

### As a percentage:

#### 'Percent%' means 'from a hundred'.

#### p% = p 'of a hundred'.

#### p% = ^{p}/_{100} = p ÷ 100.

#### fracture ^{100}/_{100} = 100% = 100 ÷ 100 = 1

#### Multiply a number by the fraction ^{100}/_{100} and their value does not change:

#### 0,055220883534 =

#### 0,055220883534 × ^{100}/_{100} =

^{5,522088353414}/_{100} =

### Shorten fractions. Equivalent Fractions

### Let's learn and shorten the fraction using an example: ^{12}/_{16}

**Counter of fraction**The number above the fraction line 12 is called the fraction's numerator.**Denominator of the fraction.**The number below the fraction line 16 is called the denominator of the fraction;**The value of the fraction.**The fraction^{12}/_{16}indicates how many equal parts the number above the fraction line, 12, is divided into: into 16 equal parts. Thus the value of the fraction is calculated as follows:- 12 ÷ 16 = 0,75
- We notice that the two numbers, the numerator and the denominator, divide by 2 with no remainder, so we divide them by the same number, 2:
^{12}/_{16}=^{(12 ÷ 2)}/_{(16 ÷ 2)}=^{6}/_{8}- The value of the fraction
^{6}/_{8}is calculated as: - 6 ÷ 8 = 0,75
- We note that the value of the fraction
^{6}/_{8}equal to that of the break^{12}/_{16}is, namely 0.75 **Abbreviated fraction**,**Equivalent fraction.**The new break^{6}/_{8}corresponds to the original fraction^{12}/_{16}, it represents the same value or proportion of the whole, and it was calculated from the original fraction by reducing it: the numerator and denominator of the fraction were divided by the number 2.**Common divisor.**The number 2, which was used to divide the two numbers that make up the fraction, is known as the common factor of the numerator and denominator of the fraction.- Find all the factors (divisors) of a number or all common factors (divisors) of two numbers online.
- The abbreviated fraction now has a numerator of 6 and a denominator of 8.
- We also notice that the two new numbers, the new numerator and denominator, 6 and 8, divide by 2 even with no remainder (2 is a common divisor of 6 and 8), so let's divide them by 2 again:
^{6}/_{8}=^{(6 ÷ 2)}/_{(8 ÷ 2)}=^{3}/_{4}- The value of the fraction
^{3}/_{4}is calculated as: - 3 ÷ 4 = 0,75
- The new mathematical fraction
^{3}/_{4}is a shortened fraction and an equivalent of the fractions^{12}/_{16}and^{6}/_{8} - The break
^{3}/_{4}could no longer be abbreviated, in its simplest form the numbers 3 and 4, the numerator and the denominator of the fraction are coprime numbers (prime to each other), no other common factors than 1. ### Shorten fractions online to their simplest equivalent form
