Simplifying numerical fractions
Simplifying numerical fractions is a very usefull skill and knowing how to make fractions simpler can make a world of diference. If you are solving an equation in which there are fractions with large numerators or denominators, reducing those fractions to their lowest value will make finding the result much easier. In order to make a fraction simpler, the fraction needs to have at least two numbers that could be divided with same number. For example; you have a fraction 20/40 that can be simplified because both numerator and denominator could be divided with same number (in this case, it is number 20). In the end, you will get the number 1/2 as the result. Dividing both the numerator and the denominator with the same number is very important since it is the only way their ratio will not change and therefore influence the end result. If you want to simplify the fraction as much as possible, the number you use for simplifycation should be the greatest common factor of the numerator and the denominator.
For practice, you can use the worksheets below. They should provide you with enough practice material to help you master this skill as soon as possible.
