Reducible refers to a fraction that is not in its lowest terms. Ex. 27/90 To determine if a fraction is reducible check to see if there is a number that will divide into both terms. In this case both terms are divisible by the number 3. Dividing both by 3 yields 9/30. But each term here is also divisible by 3 yielding 3/10. Neither term is further divisible by any same whole number, thus this fraction is now irreducible.
