you divide both numbers by 2 and the answer is... 4 over 5

20/28=10/14=5/7

Think about it, 6/10 is 3/5 if you divide both the top and the bottom by two so you can't reduce it anymore so... 3 over 5 is your answer!6/10 = 3/5

divide = 10 with 2 remainder, make the remainder into a fraction 2/10 and reduce 142/10 = 14 1/5

No. 5/12 doesn't reduce to anything.

You mean simplify then yes, it would be reduce to 3 over 5.

No. 5/12 doesn't reduce to anything.

5/12 = 10/24 This is correct because you just multiply BOTH the numerator and denominator by 2. 5X2=10. 12X2=24. So, if you reduce 10/24, it would be 5/12. Half of 10 is 5, or 10 divided by 2 is 5. Half of 24 is 12, or 24 divided by 2 is 12.

divide both of them by the highest common factor, the highest common factor here is 10 so you divide that into 10 so it becomes 1 and then into 50 so it becomes 5 which gives 1 over 5
