Steps to simplifying fractions

(1) Find a common factor (2) Multiply both Numerator and Denominator by common factor (3) If both numbers are still even, find a common factor for the new numbers (4) Multiply by common factor

Lets say the problem is four-eights you would find a common factor, which is two and four. Im going to use two, so we would divide four by two and get two. Then we would divide eight by two and get four. The answer would be two/fourths, but since four and two are even and can be divided we will divide by two again. So two divided by two is one, and four divided by two is two. The answer is one-half.
