What is 3/8 in simplest form


Answer 1

The simplest form of 3/8 is 3/8 because the greatest commondivisor of 3 and 8 is 1.

To simplify the fraction 3/8, we need to find the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator (3) and the denominator (8) and then divide both the numerator and denominator by the GCD.

The divisors of 3 are {1, 3}, and the divisors of 8 are {1, 2, 4, 8}.

The GCD of 3 and 8 is 1, as it is the largest number that divides both 3 and 8 without any remainder.

Dividing both 3 and 8 by the GCD (which is 1) doesn't change their values:

(3 ÷ 1) / (8 ÷ 1)

= 3/8

Since the GCD is 1, the fraction 3/8 is already in its simplest form.

Hence, the simplest form of 3/8 is 3/8.

Judith drove h hours at a rate of 55 mi/h. She did not reach her goal of driving 385 miles for the day. How long did she drive? Write an inequality and then solve for h.


if she did not reach her goal then
miles she drove must be less than 385
miles she drove<385

so rate=55 miles per hour
miles driven=h times 55
55 times h<385
divide both sides by 55
she drove less than 7 hours

Step-by-step explanation:

An airplane flight has 228 seats. The probability that a person who buys a ticket actually goes on that flight is about 95%. If the airline wants to fill all the seats on the flight, how many tickets should it sell?A. Show your work.

B. Should your answer be more than 228 or less? Explain.


there should be 240 tickets sold

I made a proportion by doing 228/95 and equaling it to x/100

x= the number of seats that needs to be sold

I crossed multiplied
and got



then I diveded both sides by 95 and got


hope this helps :)

Final answer:

The airline should sell 217 tickets to have a 95% probability that all seats will be filled.


To determine how many tickets the airline should sell, we need to find the number of tickets that corresponds to a 95% probability of a person actually going on the flight. We can think of this as finding the number of tickets that gives us a 95% confidence level.

We can use the formula for confidence interval to find the number of tickets:

Number of tickets = (Desired confidence level) × (Total number of seats)

Number of tickets = 0.95 × 228 = 216.6

Since we can't sell a fraction of a ticket, the airline should sell 217 tickets to have a 95% probability that all seats will be filled.

A painter uses 1.2 liters of the paint to cover 1m2 of the wall. How many square meters he can cover with 12 liters of paint?WILL GIVE 25 Points plzzzzzz give



10 square meters can be covered with 12 liters of paint.

Step-by-step explanation:

The area painted in 1.2 l of paint = 1 sq meters


So, the area painted in 1 L of paint = ((1)/(1.2)) m^(2)

or, the total area painted in 12 L of paint = ((1)/(1.2)  * 12) m^(2)

= 10 square meters

Hence,  10 square meters can be covered with 12 liters of paint.
