step 5 Check and cancel the factors of 5 and 10 if any factors in the numerator and denominator can be cancelled each other in the above fraction of prime factors:
= (5) / (2 x 5)
= (1)/(2 )

step 6 Simplify and rewrite the fraction as like the below:
= 1/2
5/10 = 1/2
Hence,
the simplest form of 5/10 is 1/2.

GCF Method :
step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
Input values:
Fraction = 5/10

what to be found:
5/10 = ?
Find what is the lowest term of 5/10.

step 2 Find GCF (Greatest Common Factor) for both numerator and denominator of the fraction 5/10.
The GCF of 5 and 10 is 5.

step 3 Divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction 5/10 by GCF 5:
= (5/5)(10/5)

step 4 Simplify the above expression:
= (5/5)(10/5)
= 1/2
5/10 = 1/2

Hence,
1/2 is the simplified or lowest term of 5/10.
