SIMPLIFYING FRACTIONS Simplifying fractions is the process of reducing fractions and putting them into their lowest terms. Fractions may need to be simplified after a mathematical operation, such as multiplication, which produces a solution that is very large. How to use simplifying fractions: • If a fraction is very large, look for a common factor that both the numerator and denominator have in common. • Then divide both the numerator and denominator by that factor. • Look at the resulting fraction again and see if it can be reduced further. • A common way to realize that a fraction is not in lowest terms is to see if both the numerator and the denominator are even. If they are both even, then they both can be divided by two. Example: 120/135 ÷ by 5 = 24/27 not lowest terms, ÷ 3 = 8/9, lowest term Try this!
