# The standard form of -8/-36 is ______.

**Solution:**

Given, the number is -8/-36

We have to find the standard form.

We know that, to reduce the rational number to its standard form, we divide its numerator and denominator by their HCF

8 = 2 × 2 × 2

36 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

HCF of 8 and 36 = 2 × 2 = 4

-8/4 = -2

-36/4 = -9

Now, -8/-36 = -2/-9

= 2/9

Therefore, the standard form of -8/-36 is 2/9
