    1. 9/12 divide top and bottom by 3

    3/4

    now you can multiply the top and bottom by the same number and get an equivalent fraction

    3/4 * 2/2 = 6/8

    3/4 * 5/5 = 15/20

    these are all equivalent fractions to 9/12 = 3/4 = 6/8 = 15/20

    2. 16/24

    divide the top and bottom by 8

    2/3

    This is as small as it goes (keep dividing until there is no number that will go into the top and the bottom evenly).
