## What Is Meant By Reducing Fractions?

Reducing fractions means to find the lowest form of a fraction, for which we divide the numerator and denominator by a common divisor until the common factor becomes 1.

**Solved Example:**

Reduce the fraction 14/20 to its lowest terms.

**Solution:**

Factors of 14 = 1, 2, 7, 14

Factors of 20 = 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20

So, there is only one common factor of 14 and 20 other than 1, i.e., 2.

By dividing 14 and 20 by 2, we get 7 and 10.

∴ 14/20 is reduced to 7/10.

Now, use the above calculator to find the lowest form of the following fractions:

- 44/11
- 65/85
