# Use inspection or the greatest common divisor to reduce the following fractions to lowest terms. 14 112

To determine

To calculate: The lowest form of the fraction 14112.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided fraction is 14112.

Formula used:

Inspection method:

Step 1: Find the common divisors of numerator and denominator by trial and error method. A common divisor is a number which divides both the numerator and denominator evenly.

Step 2: Then divide the numerator and denominator by the obtained common divisor.

Step 3: Repeat this process until there are no common divisors left other than 1. Then the obtained fraction is the lowest term.

Calculation:

Consider the fraction, 14112.

Now, both the numerator 14 and the denominator 112 of the given fraction is divisible by 7.

So, divide both the numerator and the denominator of the given fraction by 7 separately
