I am having trouble understanding how to reduce fractions to its lowest term...
All I can understand is I have to find the lowest number that will divide into both numerator and denominator.
How do I understand the solution on how to reduce fractions to its lowest terms?
Here is one In my book that even explains it but I still don't understand it.
Reduce this.
70/155
I know the answer is 14/31 but how do I get the answer?

One way to reduce fractions is to start with a small number.
I know that 155 and 70 is divisible by 5 because they end in 0 or 5.
70/155 = 14/31

okay, you can divide them both by 5,
getting 14/31 that is all
