The answer is 2/3 in proper fraction and 0.666… in decimal form.
Below is how we arrive at those answers.
In this case we are going to reduce 4/6 to its simplest form.
Steps of simplifying fractions.
4/6 can be reduced in a simpler for
We find the HCF (highest Common Factor) or GCF ( greatest common factor) of the numerator and denominator
The numerator is 4 and denominator is 6
Steps to find HCF or GCF of 4 and 6
Prime factorization of 6
2 x 3 = 6
Prime factorization of 4
2 x 2 = 4
To get the GCF or HCF multiply all prime factors common to both numbers.
For our case the prime factor common to 4 and 6 is 2 only
Therefore, HCF or GCF of 4 and 6 is 2
After divide the numerator and denominator by the HCF
After reducing 4/6 by 2 we get a reduced fraction 2/3
4/6 simplified to its lowest form is 2/3
Proper fraction is 2/3
Decimal fraction is 0.666…
