**Example Simplify 50/100**

Let's say we want to simplify 50/100 to its reduced form. We start testing all integers to see if and they divide 50 and 100, to get the subsequent resulting Value. The resulting value will be the simplified fraction. so, we start with 2 and keep on checking to the 19 number.

50/100 ÷ 2 = 25/50; that divides we start again with 2

25/50 ÷ 2 = 12.5/25, not integer values so try next highest number, 3

25/50 ÷ 3 = 8.333/16.67, not integer so try next highest number, 4

25/50 ÷ 4 = 6.25/12.5, not integer so try next highest number, 5

25/50 ÷ 5 = 5; that divides, we start again with 2

5/10 ÷ 2 = 2.5/5, not integer so try next highest number, 3

5/10 ÷ 3 = 1.67/3.33, not integer so try next highest number, 4

5/10 ÷ 4 = 1.25/2.5, not integer so try next highest number, 5

5/10 ÷ 5 = 1/2

So 50/100 simplified is the same as 1/2
