Fractions are written in the form of ‘a/b’ where ‘a’ and ‘b’ are integers and denominator ‘b’ is not equal to ‘0’.  Fractions can be simplified further by dividing the numerator and the denominator by a common factor. Reduce fractions calculator is the online tool which can simplify and reduce fractions to their simplest forms.


Example 1:Reduce the given fraction, 28/32 to its simplest form.

Given fraction: 28/32

To convert the fraction into its simplest form, we need to cancel the common factors.

So first write the prime factorization of the numbers in the numerator and the denominator.

28 = 2 * 2 * 7

32 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2

Now for 28/32, we can cancel the common numbers between them.

Then we get -> 28/32 = (7)/ (2 * 2 * 2) = 7/8

Hence the simplest form of 28/32 = 7/8.
 


Example 2: Reduce the given fraction, 56/42 to its simplest form.

Given fraction: 56/42

To convert the fraction into its simplest form, we need to cancel the common factors.

So first write the prime factorization of the numbers in the numerator and the denominator.

56 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 7

42 = 2 * 3 * 7

Now for 56/42, we can cancel the common numbers between them.

Then we get -> 56/42 = (2 * 2)/ (3) = 4/3

Hence the simplest form of 56/42 = 4/3.
