Methods to Simplify Fraction

General Steps

    Let's examine the fraction 2/4.
  • The first step is to determine the largest number that evenly divides the numerator and the denominator (also called the Greatest Common Factor of these numbers). In other words, what's the biggest number that goes into '2' (the numerator) and '4', the denominator?
    Step 1
  • Step 2 ) Once you've answered step 1 and realized that, for our fraction at least, the greatest number that evenly divides 2 and 4 is '2'. Now divide the top and the bottom by 2 to get your simplified fraction which is ½.

  • If you look at the picture above, you can see that the simplified fraction ½ and the original fraction (2/4) are equal. They both take up the same amount of the pizza.
