Fraction in Simplest Form ( Simplify Fractions ) – A Fraction is said to be in simplest form when the** numerator** and **denominator** of a fraction has **only common factor **i.e, **1**

In other words, To simplify a fraction in simplest form we **divide** the** numerator** and **denominator** of a fraction **by their H.C.F** ( Highest Common Factor ).

## Fraction in Simplest Form Examples

**Example 1**

Convert 15/45 into its Simplest Form?

**Explanation :**

Finding HCF of **15** and **45**.

Factors of 15 are **3**, **5**

Factors of 45 are **5**, **3**, 3

HCF of **15** and **45** = 3 x 5 = **15**

Divide Numerator and Denominator by their HCF i.e, **15**

**Example 2**

Convert 70/30 into its simplest form.

**Explanation:**

Given Fraction:

70/30

In order to convert a fraction, into its simplest form, we first find the HCF of the Numerator and Denominator

HCF of 70 and 30 is 10

Thereafter, we divide both the Numerator and Denominator by their HCF i.e, 10

**Example 3**

Convert 24/54 into its simplest form.

**Explanation:**

Given Fraction:

24/54

In order to convert a fraction, into its simplest form, we first find the HCF of the Numerator and Denominator

HCF of 24 and 54 is 6

Thereafter, we divide both the Numerator and Denominator by their HCF i.e, 6

**Example 4**
