# How do you reduce 6/9 to lowest terms?

Jul 26, 2016

$\frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

Given that the value of the denominator and numerator are factors of 3; that being:

$2 \times 3 = 6$
and:
$3 \times 3 = 9$

Therefore, we can say that:
$\frac{6}{9} = \frac{2 \times 3}{3 \times 3}$

Cancelling out, both threes on the numerator and denominator, we get:

$\frac{2}{3}$

Therefore, the lowest term of the fraction $\frac{6}{9}$ is $\frac{2}{3}$.
