Fractions are to be reduced by a given number


Fractions are to be reduced by a given number (Example for this math problem)


A fraction is given, and with it, a whole positive number. The second number is a factor of both the nominator and the denominator of the fraction. In fact, it is the greatest common factor of them, also called the greatest common divisor (GCD). The fraction has to be reduced by that number. The result will be a fraction with the same value as the original fraction, but it will be reduced to lowest terms.

The number range from which both numerator and denominator are randomly selected can be chosen.

In each problem, a single fraction is to be reduced. The number of problems and thus the number of fractions to be reduced can be specified.
