How do you simplify a fraction?

To simplify a fraction, the numerator and denominator must both be divisible by the same number (factor).Divide the numerator and the denominator by their GCF (greatest common factor). For example, to simplify the fraction 14/49, divide the numerator and the denominator by 7 to obtain the simplified fraction 2/7.In the simplest form of a fraction, the numerator and denominator are relatively prime or co-prime, i.e. they have no common prime factors, their GCF is 1.


What is a fraction when its numerator and denominator are relatively prime?

As the numerator and denominator don't have any common factors then the fraction is in its simplest form. If they weren't relatively prime then there would be a common factor and therefore the fraction could be simplified.

If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are prime numbers is the fraction in simplest form and why?

Yes. If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are prime, the fraction is in simplest form. The reason is that each number has only two factors, 1 and the number itself. For that reason, it is not possible for the numerator and denominator to have any factors (other than 1) in common.


Can fraction notation be simplified if the numerator and denominator are two different prime numbers?

No. To simplify a fraction the numerator and denominator must have a common factor greater than 1.
