# How to do Fractions

Document Description
Math fractions are numbers that are expressed as the ratio of two numbers. These are primarily used for comparison between parts and the whole. A fraction can be a part of an object or a group of objects.How to do Fractions For example, we can find one half of pastry by cutting the pastry into two equal parts. We can find one half of a packet of jelly beans by dividing the jelly beans into two equal groups. Each group or share is better known as one half and this is same for other fractions as well. Fractions that are equivalent are nothing but fractions that are equal. For example, 3 out of 7 is equivalent to 6 out of 14. In Fraction learning, one can learn addition of fractions, subtraction of fractions, multiplication of fractions, division of fractions, comparing fractions and converting fractions.

How to Simplify Fractions
1.
In order to simplify fractions, we first need to find the common factor of both the numerator and
denominator (A common factor is any number that divides both the numerator and denominator). Like
3 divides 6 and 21.
2.
Then continue dividing the fraction with the common factor till there are no more common factors
in the numerator and denominator. How to do Fractions
3.
Now the fraction is called as simplified fraction as no common factors remaining which can divide
both the numerator and denominator.
Example 1:
Lets take $\frac{12}{14}$. Here both 12 and 14 are divisible by 2 so lets divide the fraction with 2.
So we get $\frac{12}{14}$ = $\frac{6}{7}$ Now $\frac{6}{7}$ does not have any common factors so
$\frac{6}{7}$ is the simplified fraction
So both 18 and 42 are divisible with 2, 3, 6
Example 2:
Simplify $\frac{24}{27}$. Here both 24 and 27 are divisible by 3.
So divide the numerator and denominator by 3
$\frac{24}{27}$ = $\frac{8}{9}$. Now 8 and 9 does not have common factors , so $\frac{8}{9}$ is the
simplified fraction.
