# What is the lowest term of 64/32?

The lowest form of any fraction is obtained by eliminating the common factors between the numerator and the denominator.

## Answer: The lowest form of 64/32 is 2/1 or 2.

The lowest form of the fraction means there cannot be any common factor between the numerator and the denominator except 1.

**Explanation:**

Let us express the denominator and the numerator as a product of its prime factors, as:

64 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2

32 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2

As we see here, there are five 2's as common factors in the numerator and the denominator, therefore, we will have to eliminate them to get the lowest form of 64/32, as:

64/32 = 2/1 = 2

### Therefore, the lowest form of 64/32 is 2/1 or 2.
