**fraction**is in

**lowest terms**when the numerator and denominator have no common factor other than 1. We can reduce this

**fraction**by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their common factor, 2.

^{2}

^{÷}

^{2}/4 ÷ 2 =

^{1}/2. 1 and 2 have no common factor other than 1, so the

**fraction**is in

**lowest terms**.

Similarly, it is asked, what are fractions in lowest terms?

A **fraction** is said to written using **lowest terms** if its numerator and denominator are relatively prime , that is, they have no common factors other than 1 . (Some books use "**simplest form**" to mean the same thing.) So, 59 is written in **lowest terms**, since 5 and 9 have no common factors other than 1 .

Also Know, what is the lowest term for 8 10? **How to reduce (simplify) to lowest terms ordinary (common) math fraction ^{8}/_{10}?**

- As a proper fraction. (numerator smaller than denominator):
^{8}/_{10}=^{4}/_{5} - As a decimal number:
^{8}/_{10}= 0.8. - As a percentage:
^{8}/_{10}= 80%

Additionally, how do you reduce a fraction to its lowest terms?

To **reduce a fraction** to **lowest terms**, divide the numerator and denominator by their Greatest Common Factor (GCF). This is also called simplifying the **fraction**. Click on the **fraction** to see how to **reduce** it to **lowest terms**.

What is the lowest term for 2 8?

To reduce this fraction, simply divide the numerator and denominator by 2 (the GCF). So, **28** = 2÷**28**÷2 = 14. Thus, **28** is equivalent to 14 in the reduced **form**.
