# 25/6 simplified

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking to simplify the fraction 25/6, which involves determining if the fraction can be reduced or expressed in a different form.

The fraction is $\frac{25}{6}$ or as a mixed number $4 \frac{1}{6}$.

The fraction $\frac{25}{6}$ cannot be simplified further and can also be expressed as the mixed number $4 \frac{1}{6}$.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Identify the Fraction We have the fraction $\frac{25}{6}$.

2. Check for Simplification To determine if $\frac{25}{6}$ can be simplified, we need to check if the numerator (25) and the denominator (6) have any common factors.

3. Finding Common Factors The factors of 25 are 1, 5, and 25. The factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3, and 6. The only common factor is 1.

4. Conclusion on Simplification Since the common factor is 1, the fraction $\frac{25}{6}$ cannot be simplified further.

5. Convert to Mixed Number (If Desired) To express the fraction as a mixed number, divide 25 by 6. This gives: $$25 \div 6 = 4 \text{ R } 1$$ So, we can write: $$\frac{25}{6} = 4 \frac{1}{6}$$

The fraction $\frac{25}{6}$ cannot be simplified further and can also be expressed as the mixed number $4 \frac{1}{6}$.

The fraction $\frac{25}{6}$ is already in its simplest form. If you convert it to a mixed number, it shows how many whole parts and what is left over, which can be helpful for various applications.
