4. Check that the answer is reduced: The numerator and denominator should not have any common factors besides 1. When the GCF of the numerator and denominator is 1, the fraction is reduced. 5. Check that the answer is not improper: The numerator must be smaller than the denominator. If the numerator is larger than the denominator, you must change the improper fraction to a mixed number. 1.Check if you can simplify first 2.Multiply numerators 3.Multiply denominators Before you start. Write a whole number as a fraction over one. Write a mixed number as an improper fraction. Steps: Must Keep Notes Must Keep Notes… Example 1: Note: Use the divisibility rules for 2,3,5,7 to help you reduce. Don’t Divide !!!!!!! Change to Multiply…… Keep Change Flip ***Multiply by the reciprocal.
