# If both the numerator and denominator of a fraction are even is the fraction in simplest form?

No. This cannot be. If both the numerator and denominator of a fraction are even, both are divisible by 2, and the fraction must reduce to a simpler form. It must reduce. Let'…s look at a couple. 2/4 = 1/2 6/26 = 3/13 22/166 = 11/83 434/9252 = 217/4626 It turns out that all even numbers are divisible by 2, so any, that is, every fraction with an even number in the numerator and the denominator can be reduced at least one "step" by dividing both numerator and denominator by 2. Another way to look at this or say it is that all even numbers have 2 as a factor, so you'll be able to factor out a 2 from both the numerator and denominator of a fraction if both numbers are even. There is no way not to do this.

# Are fractions with an odd and even number in it already in simplest form?

No Examples 3/12=1/4 9/12=3/4

# What is the probability of rolling an even number or a prime number on a cube.write as a fraction in simplest form?

Even probability: 3/6= 1/2 Odd probability: 3/6= 1/2 (a cube has six sides and normally is numbered 1-6)

# Can you assume that any fraction is in simplest form if either the number or denominator is a prime number?

No. Although one number is prime, the other number could still have room for the prime to fit in. Example: 11/22 can still be simplified even though 11 is a prime number. It c…an be divided by 11. The answer will be 1/2. Remember that a prime number can still be divided by itself.

# Are odd and even numbers in simplest form?

no cause some are still divisble

# What number is both even and odd?

There is no number that is both even (divisible by 2) and odd (not divisible by 2). Even numbers are of the form 2m for all integer m; Odd numbers are of… the form 2n + 1 for all integer n; Assume there is an even number is also an odd number, then for some integer m and n: 2m = 2n + 1 Ă˘ďż˝ďż˝ 2m - 2n = 1 Ă˘ďż˝ďż˝ 2(m - n) = 1 Ă˘ďż˝ďż˝ m - n = 1/2 But as m and n are both integers, their difference cannot be a fraction. Thus there are no integer m and n that satisfy 2m = 2n + 1, which means that the original assumption that there is an even number that is also an odd number is false. Thus there is no number that is both even and odd. This question is actually a riddle. The answer is 6 or 9, since flipping either number will give you the other.

# What is the only number that is both even and odd?

Mathematically, there is no such number. This question is actually a riddle. The answer is 6 or 9, since flipping either number will give you the other.

# What is the number that's both even and odd?

An even number can be divided by 2 evenly. An odd number will have a remainder of 1 when divided by 2. No number is both.

# What is a number both even and odd?

An even number can be divided by 2 evenly. An odd number will have a remainder of 1 when divided by 2. A number is never both.

# What number can be both odd and even?

"Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set in order a narrative of those things which have been fulfilled among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and… ministers of the word delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus, that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed."
