in the worked example 3 gcd(ab)=1 can you explain it why?

Think about why this must be true. Let me put it in another way.

Given a fraction \( \frac{a}{b} \), what do we do to put it in lowest terms?

Can you explain what WLOG stands for?

That stands for Without Loss Of Generality. It basically means that you're justified in imposing some new condition.
