# Multiply the following fractions and reduce to lowest terms. Use cancellation whenever possible. 8 11 × 33 40 × 4 1

To determine

To calculate: The value of the product 811×3340×41 in the lowest term.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided expression is 811×3340×41.

Formula used:

Multiplication and Reduction:

Step 1: Simply write the multiplication of fractions.

Step 2: Find a common factor which divides at least one of the numerators and one of the denominators evenly.

Step 3: Divide the numerator and denominator by the corresponding common factor to reduce the expression.

Step 4: Repeat this process until there are no more common factors other than 1.

Step 5: Now, multiply all the simplified numerators to form the new numerator and all he denominators to form the new denominator.

Calculation:

Consider the expression, 811×3340×41

Here, 33 in the numerator and 11 in the denominator have a common factor 11.

So, divide 33 in the numerator and 11 in the denominator by the common factor 11.

8111×33340×41=81×340×41

Here in this obtained expression 8 in the numerator and 40 in the denominator have a common factor 8
