    step 5 Check and cancel the factors of 9 and 12 if any factors in the numerator and denominator can be cancelled each other in the above fraction of prime factors:
    = (3 x 3) / (2 x 2 x 3)
    = ( 3)/(2 x 2 )

    step 6 Simplify and rewrite the fraction as like the below:
    = 3/4
    9/12 = 3/4
    Hence,
    the simplest form of 9/12 is 3/4.



    GCF Method :
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input values:
    Fraction = 9/12

    what to be found:
    9/12 = ?
    Find what is the lowest term of 9/12.

    step 2 Find GCF (Greatest Common Factor) for both numerator and denominator of the fraction 9/12.
    The GCF of 9 and 12 is 3.

    step 3 Divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction 9/12 by GCF 3:
    = (9/3)(12/3)

    step 4 Simplify the above expression:
    = (9/3)(12/3)
    = 3/4
    9/12 = 3/4

    Hence,
    3/4 is the simplified or lowest term of 9/12.
