Simplifying fractions has been one of the major concern for most children. But, worry not! There is an easy explanation to it and we have it right here.
Once students have a basic familiarity with fractions, the next step is to understand how to compare fractions. Sometimes the concept of denominators takes a little time to grasp. Often students will confuse a larger denominator with a larger value for the fraction, when in reality the numerator, not the denominator, expressed the actual value being represented. The size of the numerator relative to the denominator is what ultimately describes the actual value of the fraction.
Find the step by step solution for simplifying fractions, hope it made your calculations easy. But why stop here? Get more and more fun practice, not from text books but from math games and FREE math worksheets.
Reducing fractions is another skill involved in just about any of the fraction operations. The fraction worksheets on this page introduce reducing gradually by providing problems with increasingly more difficult denominators, and only gradually introducing mixed numbers and improper fractions.
