12 over 16

12/16
Since 4 goes into both 12 and 16 evenly, you need to divide by 4.
12/16 = 3/4

Okay, I think i get it. Is this correct?
84 over 132 in lowest terms
84/132
Since 4 goes into both 84 and 132 evenly. i divided by 4.
84/132= 21/33

Right! :)
Remember, though, that you need to find the largest number that goes into both numerator and denominator evenly.
Examples:
10/15 = 2/3 (Divide by 5)
18/36 = 1/2 (Divide by 18)
