How do you take fractions into lowest terms?

To reduce fractions to the lowest terms, you must find the highest number that will divide into both the numerator and the denominator. Divide both the numerator by the same number and the result will be a fraction reduced to its lowest terms. Example: to reduce 7/35 to its lowest terms, find the biggest number that will divide into both the numerator and the denominator. In this case, the number would be 7. Divide as explained above 7/7 = 1 (new numerator); 35/7 = 5 (new denominator) lowest term of 7/35 is 1/5. Another example: To reduce 6/9, the highest number would be 3, follow through as explained and the lowest term is 2/3.
