$\frac{13}{20}$ is in simplest form

#### Explanation:

When we simplify fractions, we want to divide the top and bottom by a number that is a factor of both the numerator and denominator.

$13$ and $20$ have no common factors, which means there's no number we can divide both the top and bottom by to simplify this.
