    How-to: Simplify 5/10 in Lowest Terms

    The below solution with step by step work shows how to find what is the lowest term of 5/10. The fraction 5/10 simplified can be found by using anyone of the below two methods:
    1. Prime factorization method,             
    2. GCF method.

    Prime Factorization 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 the prime factors of the numerator of given fraction 5/10.
    Prime factors of 5 = 5

    step 3 Find the prime factors of the denominator of given fraction 5/10.
    Prime factors of 10 = 2 x 5

    step 4 Rewrite the fraction 5/10 in the form of prime factors as like the below:
    5/10= (5) / (2 x 5)

    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.
