We reduce a fraction to lowest terms by finding an equivalent fraction in which the numerator and denominator are as small as possible.

This means that there is no number, except 1, that can be divided evenly into both the numerator and the denominator.

To reduce a fraction to lowest terms, divide the numerator and denominator by their Greatest Common Factor (GCF). This is also called simplifying the fraction.
