    How to Simplify Fraction 6/4 to its Lowest Term?

    The below workout with step by step calculation shows how to simplify the fraction 6/4 to its lowest term or simplest form. The below are the two methods used to convert the fraction to its lowest terms.
    1. GCD or HCF method             
    2. Prime factorization method
    GCD Method :
    step 1 Address the formula, input parameters & values.
    Input parameters & values:
    The given fraction = 6/4

    step 2 Find GCD (Greatest Common Factor) for both numerator & denominator.
    The GCF for 6 & 4 is 2

    step 3 divide the numerator & denominator by GCD 2 and rewrite the fraction
    = (6/2) / (4/2)

    step 2 Find prime factors for both numerator & denominator and rewrite the fraction in the form of prime factors
    Prime factors for 6 = 2 x 3
    Prime factors for 4 = 2 x 2
    = (2 x 3) / (2 x 2)

    step 3 solve & rewrite the fraction
    = ( 3)/( 2)
    = 3/2

    Thus, 3/2 is the simplified fraction for 6/4 by using the prime factorization method.
