(i) \frac{-8}{6} can be written as:

\Rightarrow \frac{-8}{6} = \frac{-8/2}{6/2}= \frac{-4}{3}                 \left [ HCF\ of\ 8\ and\ 6\ is\ 2 \right ]

(ii) \frac{25}{45} can be written in the simplest form:

\Rightarrow \frac{25}{45} = \frac{25/5}{45/5}= \frac{5}{9}                       \left [ HCF\ of\ 25\ and\ 45\ is\ 5 \right ]

(iii) \frac{-44}{72} can be written as in simplest form:

\Rightarrow \frac{-44}{72} = \frac{-44/4}{72/4}= \frac{-11}{18}            \left [ HCF\ of\ 44\ and\ 72\ is\ 4 \right ]
