# How do you simplify the fraction 20/35?

Nov 29, 2016

You would simplify it to $\frac{4}{7}$.

#### Explanation:

You would have to divide both the numerator and denominator by $5$. This would result in the numerator being

$\frac{20}{5} = 4$

and the denominator being

$\frac{35}{5} = 7$

We divided by $5$ here because it was the greatest common factor of $20$ and $35$.

Hope this helped!
