Simplifying fractions

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

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.
