    both of them belong to the five times table and both numbers are divisible by 5

    so all we need is 25 divided by 25 -------------------- 100 divided by 25 it's similar to solving 25 x 1 =? 25 x 4 =?

    100=25 x 4 nd we have 25/100 we can write it as = 25/(2x25) can we cancel any terms from the numerator and denominator?? @tatiana.woodson

    I think I gave it out 25 x 1 = 25 25/25 = 1 25 x 4 = 100 100/25 = 4 so the reduced fraction is.......... 25/25 --------- 100/25

    yes so that's that new numerator. since 25 is divisible by 25 25 divided by 25 is 1

    we can also add 25 4 times 25+25+25+25 = ?

    Simply divide the fraction by the GCF, 25. Then tell me what you get as the answer ^-^

    yes so that's the reduced denominator , so our simplified and reduced fraction is 1/4
