Well for one, it means you make both the denominator and the numerator as small a number as possible, but equals the same as the original fraction. To simplify you have to have a fraction that has a denominator and numerator that can both be divided by the same number. (For example) 4/30 can be divided by 2. 4 divided by 2 is 2, and 30 divided by 2 is 15 so the new fraction would be 2/15. (Another example) 14/28 can be divided by 2 also but both numbers can also be divided by 14. 14 divided by 14 is 1, and 28 divided by 14 is 2. So the final answer is 1/2.
