# Express 2 divided by 6 as a fraction.

To write a fraction in its simplest form means the numerator and denominator can no longer be divided by the same whole number exactly or evenly.

## Answer: The value of 2 divided by 6 as a fraction is 1/ 3.

Let us write 2 divided by 6 as a fraction.

**Explanation:**

We can write 2 divided by 6 as 2 / 6.

Since both 2 and 6 are even numbers. Therefore, the GCF or the greatest common factor of 2 and 6 is 2.

So, to simplify the fraction and reduce it to its simplest form we will divide both numerator and denominator by 2.

⇒ (2 ÷ 2) / (6 ÷ 2) = 1 / 3

Both 1/ 3 and 2/ 6 are equivalent fractions having the same value.

### Thus, 2 divided by 6 as a fraction in simplest form is 1/3.
