Fraction Simplifier: Simplify Fractions Calculator is an online tool for simplifying fractions. Simplify Fractions Calculator is a tool which takes a fraction and simplifies it. Here we have to find the Highest Common Factor of both Numerators and Denominators and then Cancel both with that factor and find the lowest form of that fraction.

## How to Use Simplify Fractions Calculator

We use the greatest common factor (GCF) method to simplify fractions. This method is also known as euclidean algorithm. Until finding the greatest divisor of numerator and denominator of fraction we keep on calculating. When the divisor found, we show the simplified fractions with these divisors.

**Steps for simplifying fractions calculator:**

- Select simple fraction or mixed fraction simplifier tabs.
- Enter values and click on the calculate button.
- Next, check simplified fraction result.

## How to Simplify Fractions

Steps for simplifying fractions:

Step 1 : Find the Highest Common Factor of both Numerators and Denominators.

Step 2 : Cancel both with that factor and find the lowest form of that fraction.

## Fractions and Simplification

Fractions are defined as a part of the whole. These are represented in the form of ab, where a and b are numbers. The number “a” written above the bar, is known as numerator, while the number “b” written below the bar, is known as denominator.

For example: 1/2, 17/5, 3/4 etc.

Tips for simplifying fractions:

- Start with the lowest factor which can divide a both numerator and denominator until you cannot precede it further.
- The fraction terms are divided by greatest common factor. These steps help us to simplifying the given fractions.

## Simplify Fractions Examples

**Question 1: Simplify the fraction 12/18**

Factors of 12 = 1,2,3,4,6,12.

Factors of 18 = 1,2,3,6,9,18 So,

H.C.F. = 6

12/18 = 2×6/3×6 = 2/3

**Answer: 2/3**

**Question 2. Simplify the fraction 6/27**

Factors of 6 = 1,2,3,6.

Factors of 27 = 1,3,9,27.

So, H.C.F. = 3

**Answer: 2/9**
