Raise the fraction to the highest term 1/5 to 15ths is [tex]\frac{3}{15}[/tex]
Solution:
Given that we have to raise the fraction to the highest term 1/5 to 15ths
To raise a fraction to higher term, first you divide the larger denominator by them smaller denominator
Then multiply both the numerator and denominator by the same number, as a result that will give a new denominator.
Let "x" be the numerator of new fraction
[tex]\frac{1}{5} = \frac{x}{15}[/tex]
To make the denominator 5 to 15 we have to multiply both numerator and denominator by 3
[tex]\frac{1 \times 3}{5 \times 3} = \frac{3}{15}[/tex]
