Reducible fraction

Revision as of 22:02, 13 February 2007 by Azjps (talk | contribs) (whoops)

A reducible fraction is a ratio of two integers which have a common divisor. Thus, for example, $\frac{10}{14}$ is reducible because 2 divides both 10 and 14. On the other hand, $\frac{5}{7}$ is irreducible.

A fraction is no longer reducible when the numerator and the denominator are relatively prime.
