Answer:

#1/10#

Explanation:

To simplify a fraction, find the greatest common factor (GCF) for the numerator and denominator. The GCF is a number that will divide into both evenly. In this case, #6# is the greatest common factor. The idea is to reduce the fraction into the lowest (or simplest) form possible.

#6/60 = (6 xx 1)/(6 xx 10) = (cancel(6) xx 1)/(cancel(6) xx 10) = 1/10#

Answer:

#(6div6)/(60div6) = 1/10#

Explanation:

To write a fraction in its simplest form, you can divide the top and bottom by their GCF or HCF (greatest/highest common factor).

In #6/60#

Both 6 and 60 have 6 as a factor.

#(6div6)/(60div6) = 1/10#
