When the numerator and denominator of a fraction are the same, such as 2/2 or 5/5, we call the fraction one. This is because the numerator represents the number of equal parts we have, and the denominator represents the total number of equal parts in the whole. When they are the same, it means that we have all the equal parts that make up the whole. Therefore, the fraction simplifies to one.
