Just like math...find the greatest common denominator of the numerator and denominator and then divide each (numerator and denominator) by that number...

ie: numerator = 8 and denominator = 12 so we have 8/12 then greatest common denominator is 4... so 8/4 = 2 and 12/4 = 3 thus, 8/12 => 2/3 On Mon, 2002-12-09 at 15:55, Stephen wrote: > I know for a fact that you're all going to think, "What the heck does > he want fractions for!?"
