For a given fraction we observe the numerator and the denominator and try to find out the factorization for both the numerator and the denominator.The we cancel out the common factors and multiply the remaining numbers .
Simplest form calculator is a very effective and efficient to make the calculation easy by changing the fraction in the simplest form.

 
Example 1.
 
Find the simplest form for the fraction   15
                                                                20
Solution:
 
15 implies numerator and 20 implies denominator
Or,   15     =              numerator
        20             denominator

Prime factor for numerator i.e  15 =3*5

The prime factor for denominator i.e 20=4*5

The simplified form of the expression can be written as under :

15/20 = 3*5/4*5

Now we will cancel the common factor that is 5.

Therefore our fraction now becomes ¾.
 
 

Example 2.
 
Find the simplest form of the fraction24
                                                           28
Solution:

24 implies the numerator and 28 the denominator so,
,   24         =   numerator
    28             denominator

Prime factor for numerator i.e24 =2*2*2*3

The prime factor for denominator i.e 28=2*2*7

The simplified form of the expression can be written as under :

24/28 = 2*2*2*3/2*2*7

Now we will cancel the common factor that is 2*2.

Therefore our fraction now becomes  2*3/7 which equals  6/7 .
