**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

WALT : find an equivalent fraction which uses the lowest numbers. MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Simplifying is like finding an equivalent fraction. MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

4
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

For example, let’s think of an equivalent fraction for …… 6 10 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

5
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

So remember, what ever we do to the top number we must do to the bottom number. 6 10 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

6
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

So here’s an equivalent fraction…… let’s multiply top and bottom by 3….. times 3 18 30 6 10 times 3 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

7
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

To simplify a fraction we must change it. 18 30 6 10 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

8
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Change it to the smallest numbers possible. 18 30 6 10 Oops, this is not using the smallest numbers MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

9
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

So let’s try dividing. 6 10 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

10
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

But by what ? 6 10 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

11
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

So let’s try dividing. Divide by 2 6 10 Divide by 2 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

12
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

So let’s try dividing. Divide by 2 3 5 6 10 Divide by 2 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

13
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Yes. We have simplified this fraction. 3 5 6 10 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

14
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Here’s another 8 14 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Chat. Think. 8 14 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

16
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Can we divide 8 and 14 by 5? NO 8 14 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

17
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Can we divide 8 and 14 by 7? NO 8 14 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

18
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Can we divide 8 and 14 by 2? yes 8 14 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

19
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Can we divide 8 and 14 by 2? divide by 2 4 7 8 14 divide by 2 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

20
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

And that’s simplifying 4 7 8 14 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

21
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Even when large numbers are involved, you still follow the same rules. 18 36 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

22
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

Even when large numbers are involved, you still follow the same rules. Let’s try dividing by 2 18 36 9 18 Let’s try dividing by 2 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4

23
**MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4**

But we’re not there yet! We can simplify further. We can make these numbers smaller Let’s try dividing by 2 18 36 9 18 Let’s try dividing by 2 MALT©2006 Maths/Fractions Slide Show : Lesson 4
