### How to Reduce Fractions to Lowest Terms

To reduce a fraction to lowest terms, find the largest number that will divide evenly into both the numerator and the denominator. (Reducing the fraction will not change its value; the reduced fraction will be an equivalent.)
Example:
Reduce 6/18 to lowest terms.

The largest number that will divide evenly into both the numerator and the denominator is 6.

 618 ÷ 66 = 13

Thus, the fraction 6/18 is the same as the fraction 1/3 when reduced to lowest terms.
