Fractions - a New Method


An illegal (but occasionally effective) method of cancelling fractions is to cancel like digits. By this method, 16/64 = 1/4 because the 6's cancel, and thus the answer is apparently correct. Sadly, this simple method usually gives wrong answers, as 12/24 = 1/4! Fraction

Find all instances where the numerator and denominator are different and both comprise just two digits which give the correct answer by this method.
