It is necessary to find a number that divides into both 9 and 12 in order to express a fraction in its simplest form. The largest number is ideal.
The largest number that divides into both in this situation is 3.
Now, multiply 9 and 12 by 3.
912=9÷312÷3=34 in simplest form
Usually, thask of dividing both numbers by 3 is performed mentally, stroking out the number and replacing it by the value remaining after division.This is called cancelling
912=34

Solution: 
The largest common factor between the denominator and the numerator must first be identified. 1 and 3 and 9 are the factors of nine. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12 make up the number 12. Therefore, 3 is the number that 9 and 12 have in common. Thus, multiply both sides by 3.So the simplest form of 912 is 34

Find the GCD (or HCF) of numerator and denominator
GCD of 9 and 12 is 3
Divide both the numerator and denominator by the GCD
9÷312÷3
Reduced fraction: 34
Therefore, 9/12 simplified to lowest terms is 3/4.
