Relatively
Prime
Describes two numbers for which the only common
factor is 1. In other words, relatively prime numbers have a
greatest common factor
(gcf) of 1. For example, 6 and 35 are
relatively prime (gcf = 1). The numers 6 and 8 are not relatively
prime (gcf = 2).
Note: When you are asked to write a fraction as a
ratio of relatively prime integers, you are being asked to
simplify the fraction as much as possible.
