Simplifying fractions at a glance


Sometimes we can simplify a fraction. This can make the fraction easier to understand. To simplify a fraction we look for common factors of the numerator and the denominator. We then divide both the numerator and the denominator by the same common factor to make them both smaller. We repeat this process until the numerator and denominator have no more common factors and the fraction is reduced to its lowest terms. A fraction is the division of two integers; a fraction that contains a decimal numerator or denominator must be simplified to two integers.


 Looking forward, students can then progress to additional comparing fractions worksheets and other number worksheets, for example a rounding worksheet or percentage worksheet.
