### Let's learn and shorten the fraction using an example: 12/16

• Counter of fraction The number above the fraction line 12 is called the fraction's numerator.
• Denominator of the fraction. The number below the fraction line 16 is called the denominator of the fraction;
• The value of the fraction. The fraction 12/16 indicates how many equal parts the number above the fraction line, 12, is divided into: into 16 equal parts. Thus the value of the fraction is calculated as follows:
• 12 ÷ 16 = 0,75
• We notice that the two numbers, the numerator and the denominator, divide by 2 with no remainder, so we divide them by the same number, 2:
• 12/16 = (12 ÷ 2)/(16 ÷ 2) = 6/8
• The value of the fraction 6/8 is calculated as:
• 6 ÷ 8 = 0,75
• We note that the value of the fraction 6/8 equal to that of the break 12/16 is, namely 0.75
• Abbreviated fraction, Equivalent fraction. The new break 6/8 corresponds to the original fraction 12/16, it represents the same value or proportion of the whole, and it was calculated from the original fraction by reducing it: the numerator and denominator of the fraction were divided by the number 2.
• Common divisor. The number 2, which was used to divide the two numbers that make up the fraction, is known as the common factor of the numerator and denominator of the fraction.
• Find all the factors (divisors) of a number or all common factors (divisors) of two numbers online.
• The abbreviated fraction now has a numerator of 6 and a denominator of 8.
• We also notice that the two new numbers, the new numerator and denominator, 6 and 8, divide by 2 even with no remainder (2 is a common divisor of 6 and 8), so let's divide them by 2 again:
• 6/8 = (6 ÷ 2)/(8 ÷ 2) = 3/4
• The value of the fraction 3/4 is calculated as:
• 3 ÷ 4 = 0,75
• The new mathematical fraction 3/4 is a shortened fraction and an equivalent of the fractions 12/16 and 6/8
• The break 3/4 could no longer be abbreviated, in its simplest form the numbers 3 and 4, the numerator and the denominator of the fraction are coprime numbers (prime to each other), no other common factors than 1.
