That is, it has the smallest possible numerator and denominator.


By expanding it we can build up equivalent fractions.


Multiply the numerator & the denominator by the same number.


Example 1. By expanding the fraction by 5:


- 7/1 = - (7 × 5)/(1 × 5) = - 35/5


Example 2. By expanding the fraction by 9:


- 7/1 = - (7 × 9)/(1 × 9) = - 63/9


Of course, the above fractions are reducing...


... to the initial fraction: - 7/1
