|Reducing Fractions to Lowest Terms,
To reduce a fraction to lowest terms (also called its simplest form), divide both the numerator and denominator by the GCD. For example, 2/3 is in lowest form, but 4/6 is not in lowest form (the GCD of 4 and 6 is 2) and 4/6 can be expressed as 2/3.
You can do this because the value of a fraction is not changed if both the numerator and denominator are multiplied or divided by the same number (other than zero).
