In this tutorial, we learn how to reduce and simplify fractions. When you do this, you want to make sure you have taken common factors out of the top and bottom, then divide them out until the only common factor is the number one. You will keep going until you get to this point, or you can do another method by finding the greatest common factor. To understand this better, take the example of 24/64. The greatest common factor of these numbers is 8, because it divides evenly into both of them. First, divide 24 by 8, then 64 by 8. The number you get it 3/8, and you have simplified your fraction!
