To cancel fractions easily, follow these steps:

- Identify if there are any common factors between the numerator and denominator.
- Divide both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor.
- Repeat this process until there are no common factors left.
- The resulting fraction is the canceled form of the original fraction.

For example, letâ€™s cancel the fraction 12/18:

- The greatest common factor of 12 and 18 is 6.
- Divide both the numerator and denominator by 6: 12/6 = 2 and 18/6 = 3.
- There are no more common factors, so the canceled form of 12/18 is 2/3.

By canceling fractions, you simplify them and make them easier to work with in calculations.
