**Step 1: Calculate the Simplification Number**

To calculate the *simplification number*, divide the numerator of the first fraction (1) by the numerator of the second fraction (6):

Simplification Number: 6 ÷ 1 = 6

**Step 2: Calculate the denominator**

To calculate the *denominator* of the second fraction, divide the denominator of the first fraction (12) by the simplification number (6):

Denominator: 12 ÷ 6 = 2
