Math HELP!

1. Write 12/32 in simplest form.
Could someone please help me on how I can turn this fraction into simplest form like explain the steps! Thanks.

Ms. Sue
Start by dividing the numerator and denominator by 2.
12/32 = 6/16
Now that can also be divided by 2.
6/16 = 3/8
That's as far as we can go because 3/8 can not be divided any more.
We could have divided 12/32 by 4 and saved a step. 
Zoey
Okay thanks so the answer is 3/8!

Ms. Sue
You're welcome. Yes, the answer is 3/8

Zoey
