1 Simplifying Fractions List the factors of 45.List the factors of 60.What fraction is represented by the model?Write one fraction that is equivalent to .
2 Write fractions in simplest form. Target:Write fractions in simplest form.
3 Equivalent (Equal) Fractions: Fractions that are = but look different cuz the numerators and denominators are different.Factor: A # that goes into another # evenly.6 ÷ 3 = is a FACTOR of 6Greatest Common Factor (GCF): Biggest # that can go evenly into two different numbers.Simplest Form: Lowest Terms or “Reduced” … nothing goes into both the top & bottom evenly
4 Find two fractions that are equivalent to . Multiply the top and bottom bythe same number.Divide the top and bottom by
