How to Reduce a fraction to its simplest form in basic math

Fractions are numbers of the form a/b, where a and b are integers. Fractions are also called as ratios. Fractions are further divided into proper fractions and improper fractions. Proper fractions are those where the numerator is less than the denominator and improper fractions are those where the numerator is greater than the denominator. As fractions are ratios a fraction can have many equivalent forms. Multiplying the numerator and denominator of a fraction with a same number gives a fraction equivalent of the first fraction. Hence any fraction can be reduced into its simplest form by dividing he numerator and denominator with their greatest common factor. This video shows how to reduce fractions.
