What is 3/8 in simplest form


Answer 1

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.

Devon studied the composite figure.(Picture 1)
He believed the surface area, in square units, could be found by simplifying the expression
(Picture 2)
What error did Devon make?

A. He used 26 instead of 24 as the slant height of one set of lateral faces.
B. He omitted the rectangle where the upper and lower solids join together.
C. He included the 34 by 20 base of the figure.
D. He believed the upper part of the figure was a pyramid instead of a prism.


If we look at his calculations
2((9)(20) is the front an back rectangle
2((9)(34)) is the side rectangles
(34)(20) is the bottom
2(1/2(20(24)) is te front and top triangles
and the last one assumes that they are triangles which is incorrect

answer is D

Your answer should be 16/9
\bf \left( \cfrac{64}{27} \right)^{(2)/(3)}\implies \left( \cfrac{4^3}{3^3} \right)^{(2)/(3)}\implies \left( \cfrac{4^{3\cdot (2)/(3)}}{3^{3\cdot (2)/(3)}} \right)\implies \cfrac{4^2}{3^2}\implies \cfrac{16}{9}

An original piece of artwork is 2.75 feet by 2.25 feet a reprint of the artwork is 22 inches by 18 inches are the pieces similar? if so what is the ratio of their corresponding side lengths?


Yes, the Repainted Artwork is similar to the Original. The 22*18 inch repaint can be recaclculated into a 1.83*1.5 feet repaint. Both can be multiplied by about 1.5 to equal 2.75*2.25. Therefore, the ratio is 1.5.

Joelle bought 20 lollipops and 6 bags of Doritos for a total cost of $8.20. She knows that each lollipop cost 25 cents and reasoned that two bags of chip must cost a little more than $1.00. Is this a reasonable guess? Why or why not?


I mean... I think it's a reasonable guess because not gonna lie- chips can get expensive. BUT- It doesn't really make sense because like, she bought so many lollipops. My brain isn't really functioning to do the math- but my best guess would beeeee...UNreasonble. I'm super super sorry if it's wrong. Math isn't my strong point, sorry. Have a nice day!



Step-by-step explanation:

because 20×.25 = 5 so the lollipop cost $5.00 and then you only have 3.20 left over

Three vertices of a rectangle are (–2, 1), (–2, –3), and (4, –3)What are the coordinates of the fourth corner point of the rectangle






the answer is C
it's easier if you graph it
we know that the x of the unknown vertice is 4, because this is a rectangle and that vertices has to be on the same x line as the point below.
y of the unknown vertice has to be 1 because the vertice to the left needs to be on the same y line as the unknown vertice
