Representing the fraction in simplest form
When the numerator and denominator of a fraction are both whole numbers that are coprime to one another, the fraction is said to be in its simplest form.
Any fraction can be easily found in its simplest form. We need to simplify the numerator and denominator of the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor (HCF) that divides them completely.
Now,
$HCF\left(18,24\right)=6$
$\therefore \frac{18}{24}=\frac{18÷6}{24÷6}=\frac{3}{4}$
Hence, simplest form of $\frac{18}{24}is\frac{3}{4}$.
