How do you simplify a fraction on a TI-84Plus
Enter the fraction for example: enter 8/12.
The answer will be .666666
Then click Math (which is located under the Alpha button).
Click the ->Frac button (the first one).
It should come up as Ans->Frac.
Click Enter.
It should now read 2/3 which is 8/12 reduced.
Note: I have a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, and the TI-84 Plus might not have this function, but that is how I do it on my TI-84 Plus Silver Edition

Hello,
When the TI83PLUS/TI84PLUS converts a decimal number into a fraction it is always in its simplest (reduced form). You can also have a simple fraction without passing by a decimal number representation. Here how to do it.
Exemple: the fraction 27/48 can be simplified by dividing both elements by 3.
You enter 27/48 [MATH][1:->Frac] [ENTER] ; display shows 9/16
Hope it helps

Texas Instrument has released a major update to the TI84PLUS/SE. This update numbered 2.53MP introduces Math Print that displays fractions as one sees them in textbooks. Installing it will allow the user to manipulate easily fractions (mixed numbers, improper fractions ) calculate logs in arbitrary bases, configure the calculator to convert automatically fractions to decimals, etc. It is WORTH installing.

In some cases, inputting the fraction and getting a decimal answer can work if the answer is simple enough. With i.e. 231/308, you get 0.75, which obviously is the same as 3/4. I cannot remember how to properly simplify fractions, though.
