To find the number in lowest terms, you can set up an equation and solve for the unknown number ( x ):

[ \frac{3}{4}x = \frac{7}{8} ]

To solve for ( x ), multiply both sides of the equation by the reciprocal of ( \frac{3}{4} ), which is ( \frac{4}{3} ):

[ x = \frac{7}{8} \times \frac{4}{3} = \frac{7 \times 4}{8 \times 3} = \frac{28}{24} ]

Now, simplify the fraction ( \frac{28}{24} ) to lowest terms by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 4:

[ \frac{28}{24} = \frac{7}{6} ]

So, the number in lowest terms is ( \frac{7}{6} ).
