How do you write fractions in simplest form?

Find the GCF of the numerator and the denominator and divide them both by it. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is in its simplest form.

A jury of 12 people is selected from a pool of 30 people that includes 12 men and 18 women what is the probablilty that the jury will be composed of 12 women?

Order does not matter in this case because the order in which the 12 women are chosen won't change the answer. Since order does not matter, a combination is used instead of a permutation. Therefore the equation would be set up as: (18 C 12) / (30 C 12) = 0.02% The numerator is achieved because there are 18 women of the 30 people and 12 women are chosen. The denominator is achieved because there are 30 people in all and 12 people are chosen from those 30 people. Hope this helped!

What quote by President Carter was famous?

I'm not sure which one in particular that you're looking for, but some of my favorite quotes of President Carter are: "America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense human rights invented America." "It is difficult for the common good to prevail against the intense concentration of those who have a special interest, especially if the decisions are made behind locked doors." " War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children." "You can do what you have to do, and sometimes you can do it even better than you think you can." "If you fear making anyone mad, then you ultimately probe for the lowest common denominator of human achievement."
