#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking us to simplify the fraction 6/4 to its lowest terms. This involves finding the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator and the denominator and dividing both by it.

#### Answer

$$\frac{3}{2}$$
##### Answer for screen readers

The final answer is ( \frac{3}{2} )

#### Steps to Solve

1. Identify the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD)

The first step is to find the GCD of the numerator (6) and the denominator (4). The factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3, and 6. The factors of 4 are 1, 2, and 4. The GCD is 2.

1. Divide both numerator and denominator by the GCD

Next, we divide both the numerator and the denominator by the GCD which is 2.

$$\frac{6 \div 2}{4 \div 2} = \frac{3}{2}$$

1. Simplified fraction

The fraction 6/4 simplified to its lowest terms is

$$\frac{3}{2}$$

The final answer is ( \frac{3}{2} )

#### More Information

Simplifying fractions helps to reduce them to their simplest form, making them easier to understand and work with.

#### Tips
