Given fractions
\(\displaystyle-{\frac{{{1}}}{{{6}}}},-{\frac{{{5}}}{{{8}}}},-{\frac{{{7}}}{{{48}}}}\)
Consider
\(\displaystyle-{\frac{{{1}}}{{{6}}}}\)
Multiply and divide with 8 we get
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{-{1}}}{{{6}}}}\times{\frac{{{8}}}{{{8}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{-{8}}}{{{48}}}}\)
Consider
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{-{5}}}{{{8}}}}\)
Multiply and divide with 6 we get
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{-{5}}}{{{8}}}}\times{\frac{{{6}}}{{{6}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{-{30}}}{{{48}}}}\)
similary we have \(\displaystyle{\frac{{-{7}}}{{{48}}}}\)
Hence,
All 3 fractions with the lowest common denominator are
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{-{8}}}{{{48}}}},{\frac{{-{30}}}{{{48}}}},{\frac{{-{7}}}{{{48}}}}\)
