# How to Simplify 108/11

Are you looking to calculate how to simplify 108/11? In this really simple guide, we'll teach you exactly how to simplify 108/11 and convert it to the lowest form (this is sometimes calling reducing a fraction to the lowest terms).

To start with, the number above the line (108) in a fraction is called a numerator and the number below the line (11) is called the denominator.

So what we want to do here is to simplify the numerator and denominator in 108/11 to their lowest possible values, while keeping the actual fraction the same.

To do this, we use something called the **greatest common factor**. It's also known as the greatest common divisor and put simply, it's the highest number that divides exactly into two or more numbers.

In our case with 108/11, the greatest common factor is 1. Once we have this, we can divide both the numerator and the denominator by it, and voila, the fraction is simplified:

108/1 = 108

11/1 = 11

*As you can see, 108/11 cannot be simplified any further, so the result is the same as we started with. Not very exciting, I know, but hopefully you have at least learned why it cannot be simplified any further!*

You might have noticed that the numerator is greater than the denominator in 108/11. This is known as an improper fraction and we can further simplify it down to a mixed fraction:

9 9/11So there you have it! You now know exactly how to simplify 108/11 to its lowest terms. Hopefully you understood the process and can use the same techniques to simplify other fractions on your own. The complete answer is below:
