How do i write the fraction in lowest terms?

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)
