1. 12/8 +5/6 Consider the LCM of 6 and 8. This is the union, multiplied, of {2,3} and {2,2,2}. We get {2,3,2,2}. Multiplied together this is of course 24. That means, our two factors are: x/24 + y/24 From here we reason that we should include the 3 of 24/8 and the 4 of 24/6 need be included in the translation of 12/8 and 5/6. We get 12*3/8*3 and 5*4/6*4. We... read more

Factors A factor is a part of a number and two factors multiplied together produce a product. Every number has at least two factors, possibly more. For example, the number 2 has two factors, 1 and 2, because 2 x 1 = 2. Some numbers have more than two factors, like 10. Factors of 10 would include, of course, 1 and 10, but they would also include 2 and 5, because 2 x 5 = 10. Therefore, if... read more

Factors and Multiples Factors are parts of numbers that, multiplied together, give a larger number. Every number has at least two factors, one and the number itself. On the other hand, multiples are numbers where the same number is repeated, as if you were counting by that number. For example, the multiples of 2 start with 2 and are: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 . . . and so on. Each additional number... read more
