1 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Fractions 1.2 1.Write equivalent fractions. 2.Write equivalent fractions with the LCD. 3.Write the prime factorization of a number. 4.Simplify a fraction to lowest terms.

2  Numerator  Denominator  Part  Whole Fractions

3 Equivalent Fractions ∙ 2 ∙ 3 ∙ 2 ÷ 3

4 Prime factorization: Factors: Expressions that are being multiplied. Prime number:A natural number that has only 1 and the number itself as factors. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23,… A factorization that contains only prime factors. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12 are factors of 12. Prime factorization of 12 is 2 ∙ 2 ∙ 3.

5 Divide by prime numbers! 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, … Find the prime factorization of 20. Factor Tree Factor Tower

6 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 372: 3 + 7 + 2 = 12 5, 10, 15, 20, … 10, 20, 30, 40, … 259: 2 + 5 + 9 = 16

7 Find the prime factorization of 60. Factor Tree Factor Tower

8 Find the prime factorization of 48. Factor Tree Factor Tower

9 Find the LCD. 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60 6: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 10: LCD = 30 Using Multiples Use when numbers are small.

10 2∙3 2∙5 LCD: 2 ∙ 3∙ 5= 30 Find the LCD. Using Prime Factorization

11 Find the LCD. 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 12: 9, 18, 27, 36 9: LCD = 36 Using Multiples

12 Find the LCD. Using Prime Factorization 2∙2∙3 3∙3 LCD: ∙ 3 = 36 2∙2∙3

13 Write the fractions as equivalent fractions with the LCD. LCD: 24 ∙3 ∙2

14 Write the fractions as equivalent fractions with the LCD. LCD: 2∙2∙2∙2∙3∙3 2∙2∙2∙2 2∙2∙3∙3 ∙9 ∙4 = 144 Suggestion:

15 Reduce Fractions. Using Prime Factorization Using Greatest Common Factor GCF: 3 3 4

16 Reduce Fractions. Using Prime Factorization Using Greatest Common Factor 5 7 GCF:6

17 Reduce Fractions. Using Prime Factorization Using Greatest Common Factor GCF: Common Factor:10 11 119 Common Factor:2 ?
