In this lesson, you will learn how to find the lowest terms of fractions. The examples include canceling down fractions with a common factor, canceling down larger fractions in multiple steps, and using the prime factors of the numerator and denominator to cancel down really large fractions. By using prime factors, you can be absolutely sure that there is no common factor between the numbers. With this method, you will be able to find the lowest term of any fraction with ease.
