What is 3/8 in simplest form

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

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.

Two pools are leaking, after 15 minutes pool A has leaked 2/3 gallon, after 20 minutes pool B has leaked 2/3 gallon. Which pool is leaking water the fastest and by how much?*20 points* please answee quick!

Answers

Answer:

Pool A.

Step-by-step explanation:

This can be solved through ratios. You would write it as (gallons)/(minutes) So, (2/3)/(15) for the first one, and (2/3)/(20) for the second. You might want to use a calculator for that part, but you could also change the gallons to cups, which gives you a much better number of 10.515. So, (10.515)/(15) = 0.701, and (10.515)/(20) = 0.52575 So, pool A is at a faster rate. If you want it in gallons per minute, it's by 0.01 (with the 1 repeating) gallons per minute. By cups, it's 0.17525 cups per minute.

(The reason I did not do this by cross multiplying and dividing ratios is because it gives you the exact same answer if you are finding it per one, as I am here with per one minute. You can do it this way, it just wastes a bit of time.)
