In this lesson on reducing fractions, Professor Perez uses number lines and arithmetic to demonstrate how to divide the top and bottom of a fraction by the same number to simplify it. He explains that this process can be done in one or multiple steps, depending on the fraction, and emphasizes the importance of reducing fractions to their lowest terms. Overall, this lesson provides a clear and easy-to-understand introduction to reducing fractions.
