First get the lowest divisible multiple of both numbers.

So,
$6 = 2 \cdot 3$
$8 = 2 \cdot 2 \cdot 2$

As we can see, 2 is the highest common multiple, so we divide the numerator and denominator by 2.

Numerator: $\frac{6}{2} = 3$
Denominator: $\frac{8}{2} = 4$

Now all we have to do is to put it into a fraction.
$\frac{6}{8} = \frac{3}{4}$
