# What Is the Lowest Term in 64/32?

## Question: 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.

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, that there are four 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

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