Best Answer

You search for common factors in the numerator and the denominator. Then you divide numerator and denominator by this common fraction.

For example, in the fraction 9/12, the common factor is 3. If you divide numerator and denominator (top and bottom) by 3, you get 3/4, which is an equivalent fraction.
