To simplify or reduce 16/28, first recognize that their greatest common factor is 4. Divide both by 4 for your answer: 4/7.

If you want to be really simplistic, you can just see that they are even numbers, and just divide by 2 until you cannot divide anymore.

\[16 \div 2 =?\] How many times does 2 go into 16?

8 times

Exactly. \[16\div 2 = 8\div 2 = 4\] \[28\div 2 = 14\div 2 = 7\] \[\frac{4}{7}\] You have to keep the number of divisions equal too.
