# How do you write the fraction 2/8 in simplest form?

$\frac{1}{4}$
It is $\frac{1}{4}$ because you find a common number that both the numerator and the denominator can be divided by. In this case, it is $2$.
$\frac{2}{2} = 1 \text{ }$ and $\text{ } \frac{8}{2} = 4$
You can't divide $\frac{1}{4}$ anymore so that is the final answer.
