Fraction is a two-part number representation which has numerator part at top and denominator part at bottom. Simplification Fractions of fraction does not always result in reducing the fraction as higher equivalent fraction could be the required answer in some cases. Simplification could also end up in improper fractions and those cases we need to convert it to mixed fraction form. Simplification could also result in reducing the fraction to its lowest possible equivalent A fraction may be proper or improper fraction. Example: 4 / 8 is simplified as 1 / 2.

How to Simplify Fractions
