### How It Works...

To enter a fraction, you have to enter the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator. E.g. 4/5 or 23/7

To enter a mixed fraction, first type the whole number followed by space followed by the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator.

E.g. 3 1/4 (3 and a quarter), 7 2/5 (seven and two-fifths), 10 4/11 (10 and four-elevenths).

If you need to find out how to simplify a fraction, there is more help further down!

There are other ways that you find a fraction's simplest form without needing to find the highest common factor (or greatest common divisor) simply by finding any common factor and canceling it out.

You then have to repeat this finding and canceling common factors until only '1' is left as a common factor.

Your fraction is then in its simplest form.
