## 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)

= 3/2

Thus, **3/2** is the simplified fraction for 6/4 by using the GCD or HCF method.

__Prime Factorization Method :__

step 1 Address input parameters & values.

Input parameters & values:

The given fraction = 6/4

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.
