#### Simplifying Fractions

Simplifying fractions means to transform a fraction to its smallest form without changing the value. Therefore you divide the numerator and denominator with the greatest common factor. Let us make an example:

100 over 40 is equal to 2,5. When you divide numerator (100) and denominator (40) with the greatest common divisor (20) the simplified fraction is 5 over 2. This is still equal to 2,5.

The numerator is represented by a. The denominator is b.

#### How to use it

#### Video introduction

Math Antics made a really nice video with all about how and why we simplify fractions. Even if this is not necessary to you it is worth to see Rob. Rob is cool. He says GCF.
