Nov 27, 2016

$\frac{10}{30} = \frac{1}{3}$

#### Explanation:

To simplify a fraction you have to find a common factor of its numerator and denominator.

Here both numbers end with a digit $0$, so both can be divided by $10$. If you do so you get:

$\frac{10}{30} = \frac{1}{3}$

Since the numerator of this fraction is $1$ you cannot perform any further simplification. So finally the simpliest form is

$\frac{10}{30} = \frac{1}{3}$
