To simplify fractions, divide them by their greatest common factor: the GCF of 8 & 24 = 8 To simplify 8/24: 8 ÷ 8 =1 24÷8 = 3 therefore 8/24 = 1/3 in its simplest form

No, since both 12 and 24 are even, you can simplify that. Since 12 can divide into both 12 and 24... 12/ 12 = 1 24 / 12 = 2 So, you can simplify 12/24 to 1/2.
