    Are you looking for a fraction as your solution, or with a remainder?

    Okay. So, first. List the factors of each number. Find the most common one. 40 : 1,2,4,5,8,10,20,40 6 : 1,2,3,6

    I'm willing to help you if you're willing to calculate some things. Anyway, so 2 is the GFC. Now, divide both the numerator and the denominator by 2. 40÷2=? 6÷2=?

    If you're looking for another answer, 20/3 cannot be simplified any further than it can be as a fraction. 6 can't go into 40 equally, it has a remainder. 6 can go into 40, 6 times, with a remainder of 4.
