## Reduce: ^{3,039,104}/_{1,519,554}

## Detailed calculations below:

### Introduction. Fractions

#### A fraction consists of two numbers and a fraction bar: ^{3,039,104}/_{1,519,554}

#### The number above the bar is the numerator: 3,039,104

#### The number below the bar is the denominator: 1,519,554

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

^{3,039,104}/_{1,519,554} = 3,039,104 ÷ 1,519,554

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

Value = 3,039,104 ÷ 1,519,554

### 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.

#### 3,039,104 = 2^{7} × 23,743;

3,039,104 is not a prime, is a composite number;

#### 1,519,554 = 2 × 3 × 251 × 1,009;

1,519,554 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 (3,039,104; 1,519,554) = 2

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

^{3,039,104}/_{1,519,554} =

^{(27 × 23,743)}/_{(2 × 3 × 251 × 1,009)} =

^{((27 × 23,743) ÷ 2)} / _{((2 × 3 × 251 × 1,009) ÷ 2)} =

^{(26 × 23,743)}/_{(3 × 251 × 1,009)} =

^{1,519,552}/_{759,777}

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

^{1,519,552}/_{759,777} 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.

#### 1,519,552 ÷ 759,777 = 1 and remainder = 759,775 =>

#### 1,519,552 = 1 × 759,777 + 759,775 =>

^{1,519,552}/_{759,777} =

^{(1 × 759,777 + 759775)} / _{759,777} =

^{(1 × 759,777)} / _{759,777} + ^{759775} / _{759,777} =

#### 1 + ^{759,775}/_{759,777} =

#### 1 ^{759,775}/_{759,777}

### As a decimal number:

#### 1 ^{759,775}/_{759,777} =

#### 1 + ^{759,775}/_{759,777} =

#### 1 + 759,775 ÷ 759,777 ≈

#### 1.999997367649 ≈

#### 2

### As a percentage:

#### 1.999997367649 =

#### 1.999997367649 × ^{100}/_{100} =

#### ^{199.999736764867}/_{100} =

#### 199.999736764867% ≈

#### 200%

#### In other words:

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

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

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