### How to Simplify Fractions?

These are the simple steps to find the reduced fraction value.

• Take any fraction with the numerator, and denominator values.
• Find the factors of both numerator and denominator.
• After that, calculate the GCF of the values.
• Divide the fraction by the common divisor i.e GCF
• Finally, you get the simplest form of the fraction.

### Example Questions on Reducing Fractions

Question 1:

Find the simplest form of the fraction 1225/520?

Solution:

Given fraction is 1225/520

To reduce the fraction to its lowest term, you have to divide both numerator and denominator with GCF.

GCF of 1225, 520 is 5

Divide the fraction by 5 i.e (1225÷5)/(520÷5)

= 245/104

Therefore, the reduced form of fraction 1225/520 is 245/104.

Question 2:

Simplify the fraction 1008/36?

Solution:

Given fraction is 1008/36

To reduce the fraction to its lowest term, you have to divide both numerator and denominator with GCF.

GCF of 1008 and 36 is 36

Divide the fraction by 36 i.e (1008÷36)/(36÷36)

= 26/1

Therefore, the simplified fraction is 26/1 or 26.
