## Reduce: ^{2,673}/_{56}

## Detailed calculations below:

### Introduction. Fractions

#### A fraction consists of two numbers and a fraction bar: ^{2,673}/_{56}

#### The number above the bar is the numerator: 2,673

#### The number below the bar is the denominator: 56

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

^{2,673}/_{56} = 2,673 ÷ 56

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

Value = 2,673 ÷ 56

### 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.

#### 2,673 = 3^{5} × 11;

2,673 is not a prime, is a composite number;

#### 56 = 2^{3} × 7;

56 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).

#### But the two numbers have no common prime factors.

#### gcf, hcf, gcd (2,673; 56) = 1

coprime numbers (relatively prime)

## Fraction's numerator and denominator are coprime numbers (no common prime factors). Fraction cannot be reduced (simplified) - irreducible.

^{2,673}/_{56} is an improper fraction.

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

## 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.

#### 2,673 ÷ 56 = 47 and remainder = 41 =>

#### 2,673 = 47 × 56 + 41 =>

^{2,673}/_{56} =

^{(47 × 56 + 41)} / _{56} =

^{(47 × 56)} / _{56} + ^{41} / _{56} =

#### 47 + ^{41}/_{56} =

#### 47 ^{41}/_{56}

### As a decimal number:

#### 47 ^{41}/_{56} =

#### 47 + ^{41}/_{56} =

#### 47 + 41 ÷ 56 ≈

#### 47.732142857143 ≈

#### 47.73

### As a percentage:

#### 47.732142857143 =

#### 47.732142857143 × ^{100}/_{100} =

#### ^{4,773.214285714286}/_{100} =

#### 4,773.214285714286% ≈

#### 4,773.21%

#### In other words:

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

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

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