# How do I find the simplest form of 8/54?

Dec 15, 2017

$\frac{1}{3}$ and $\frac{4}{27}$

#### Explanation:

To find the simplest form, check if the numerator and denominator can be divided by the same number, which is the common factor.

In $\frac{4}{12}$, we see the common factor is 4, so you want to divide both numerator and denominator by 4

$\frac{4 \div 4}{12 \div 4} = \frac{1}{3}$

In $\frac{8}{54}$ we see they have a common factor of 2, so divide both numerator and denominator by 2

$\frac{8 \div 2}{54 \div 2} = \frac{4}{27}$
