No, 12/64 simplifies to 3/16. 3/16 is NOT equal to 1/4.

I'm sorry I took so long! Lets try a different way. Change all the options to fractions. 1/4 A) 2/4 B) 6/20 C) 8/32 D) 12/64 Can you find the decimal form of each one of these? Divide the numerator by the denominator.1/4 = 1 divided by 4 = 0.25 Once you come up with the one that also has a decimal of 0.25, you'll have your answer. This is a much faster way. (:
