How To: Reduce fractions

Reduce fractions

This video shows you how to easily reduce fractions. A fraction contains a numerator and a denominator. The numerator is the number on the top and the denominator is the number at the bottom of the fraction. The first thing you have to do to reduce fractions is look for the greatest common factor between the numerator and the denominator and divide both top and bottom of the fraction by that common factor. (e.g.. 18/24 - the greatest common factor is 6 => (18/6)/(24/6)= 3/4. Continue reducing the fraction until you can't reduce any further. That's it! Good Luck!
