find the common factors. Numbers that will go into both of these numbers evenly.  You know that both numbers are even so you can write the problem like this





you still have both 12 and 14 even so you take another 2 and write it like this




7 is a prime number meaning it can only be divided by itself and 1 so it cannot be reduced any further.  You can cancel everything that is the same on the top and bottom

6/7 is the reduced form.
