    ok.... is there a number that both 25 and 30 have in common that we can "factor" out? Do you know what Im saying?

    think about it now. What do you multiply to get 25? What do you multiply to get 30? (1)(25) = 25 (5)(5) = 25 (1)(30) = 30 (2)(15) = 30 (3)(10) = 30 (5)(6) = 30 What number do you see that 25 and 30 have in common?

    5*5=25 5*6=30

    Very good :) we take out the (5) from each one to get 5/6. And that is what it is in lowest terms because 5 and 6 have nothing left in common. Does that make sense?

    Not quite. Do you see what I did with this? 25/5 5 ----- = --- 30/5 6

    since 9 is the smallest number; what do we know about it? 1(9) = 9 3(3) = 9 9(?) = 46? Nothing. 3(?) = 46? hmmm.... nothing. If you typed in the correct numbers: 46 ---- 9 Have nothing in common. So it is already in lowest terms.
