## Reduce: ^{1,804}/_{12}

## Detailed calculations below:

### Introduction. Fractions

#### A fraction consists of two numbers and a fraction bar: ^{1,804}/_{12}

#### The number above the bar is the numerator: 1,804

#### The number below the bar is the denominator: 12

#### The fraction bar means that the two numbers are dividing themselves:

^{1,804}/_{12} = 1,804 ÷ 12

#### Divide the numerator by the denominator to get fraction's value:

Value = 1,804 ÷ 12

### Introduction. Percent

#### 'Percent (%)' means 'out of one hundred':

#### p% = p 'out of one hundred',

#### p% = ^{p}/_{100} = p ÷ 100

### Note:

#### The fraction ^{100}/_{100} = 100 ÷ 100 = 100% = 1

#### Multiply a number by the fraction ^{100}/_{100},

... and its value doesn't change.

## To reduce a fraction, divide both its numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor, GCF.

#### To calculate the greatest common factor, we build the prime factorization of the two numbers.

### Integer numbers prime factorization:

#### Prime Factorization of a number: finding the prime numbers that multiply together to make that number.

#### 1,804 = 2^{2} × 11 × 41;

1,804 is not a prime, is a composite number;

#### 12 = 2^{2} × 3;

12 is not a prime, is a composite number;

** Positive integers that are only dividing by themselves and 1 are called prime numbers. A prime number has only two factors: 1 and itself. *

* A composite number is a positive integer that has at least one factor (divisor) other than 1 and itself.

### Calculate the greatest (highest) common factor (divisor), gcf, hcf, gcd:

#### Multiply all the common prime factors, by the lowest exponents (if any).

#### gcf, hcf, gcd (1,804; 12) = 2^{2} = 4

### Divide both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common factor.

^{1,804}/_{12} =

^{(22 × 11 × 41)}/_{(22 × 3)} =

^{((22 × 11 × 41) ÷ 22)} / _{((22 × 3) ÷ 22)} =

^{(11 × 41)}/_{3} =

^{451}/_{3}

## The fraction is now reduced to the lowest terms.

^{451}/_{3} is an improper fraction.

#### An improper fraction: numerator larger than denominator.

## Rewrite the end result, continued below...

## Rewrite the fraction:

### As a mixed number (mixed fraction):

#### A mixed number (mixed fraction): a whole number and a proper fraction, of the same sign.

#### A proper fraction: numerator smaller than denominator.

#### 451 ÷ 3 = 150 and remainder = 1 =>

#### 451 = 150 × 3 + 1 =>

^{451}/_{3} =

^{(150 × 3 + 1)} / _{3} =

^{(150 × 3)} / _{3} + ^{1} / _{3} =

#### 150 + ^{1}/_{3} =

#### 150 ^{1}/_{3}

### As a decimal number:

#### 150 ^{1}/_{3} =

#### 150 + ^{1}/_{3} =

#### 150 + 1 ÷ 3 ≈

#### 150.333333333333 ≈

#### 150.33

### As a percentage:

#### 150.333333333333 =

#### 150.333333333333 × ^{100}/_{100} =

#### ^{15,033.333333333333}/_{100} =

#### 15,033.333333333333% ≈

#### 15,033.33%

#### In other words:

#### 1) Calculate fraction's value.

#### 2) Multiply that number by 100.

#### 3) Add the percent sign % to it.
