What is 16/48 reduced to lowest terms

16/48 reduced to lowest terms would be 1/3. Feel free to check by multiplying 1 and 3 by 16.

\( \frac{16}{48} \)=\( \frac{8}{24} \)=\( \frac{1}{3} \)
To reduce to the lowest terms, you must find a common factor.
\( \frac{16}{48} has the 2 as a common factor, so you divide each side by 2 \)=\( \frac{8}{24} \)=\( \frac{1}{3} \) because 8 is a factor for 8, once, and 24, 3 times.
The answer is \( \frac{1}{3} \) reduced to the lowest terms.
