Simplifying fractions

You can make it happen

All it takes is practice, practice, practice

To simplify a fraction

We gotta take action

Lets find a common factor

Of the numerator and denominator

Yeah then divide them both

By the common factor

And dont stop till common factors are no more no more

Yeah let me show you how its done

Here we got a pizza

Lets cut it into pieces

Eight to be exact

And I was hungry so I ate half

What are we left with?

Four eighths four eighths

Lets break it down to a simpler form

Divide both by 2

What else can we do

Can we simplify it again

Yes we can

Lets try 2 once more eww

Now we got one half

And thats that

Simplifying fractions

You can make it happen

All it takes is practice, practice, practice

Simplifying fractions

Another way to do it

Find the greatest common factor

Whats that you ask

Its the largest number

That goes into the top and bottom

So lets take a look at eight twelths

The factors of 8 are 2 and 4

The factors of 12 are 2, 3, 4, and dont forget 6

4 is the largest so divide it into both

And that gives us two thirds

You nerds yeah yeah

Two thirds is our answer yeah yeah

And were done.
