Simplifying or Reducing Fractions to Lowest Terms

Sample Problem

Reduce the fraction 6/24 to lowest terms

Solution

To reduce a fraction, one must find the GCF of both the numerator 6 and the denominator 24. The GCF in this case is 6. The next step is to divide both the numerator and denominator by the number 6. You end up with the final answer 1/4. This is your final answer due to 1 not having any factors other than itself.
