## STEPS - How to ADD and SUBTRACT FRACTIONS

**ADDING FRACTIONS:**

**2/3+1/2 is the fraction**

- Change both the
**DENOMINATORS**(Bottom number of each fraction) to a common denominator, which is 6, as this is the number both 3 and 2 go into, so 2/3+1/2 becomes 2/6+1/6. - Change both the
**NUMERATORS**(Top number of each fraction), so for 2/3, see how many times 3 goes into 6. The answer is 2, so you times the numerator by 2 - so 2/3 becomes 4/6. Same for the next fraction, 2 goes into 6, 3 times, so you times the numerator by 3, so 1/2 becomes 3/6. - This equation becomes 4/6+3/6, you then add them together,
**4/6+3/6= 7/6**is the answer. Remember when adding, you only add the numerators together, the**denominators remain the same**. - Since 7/6 is an improper fraction (this means that the numerator is larger than the denominator) so you have to change it to a mixed number. 6 goes into 7, once with a remainder 1, which would be 1 1/6.

**SUBTRACTING FRACTIONS:**

- When subtracting fractions, follow steps 1 and 2, then instead of adding you subtract. Remember the bigger fraction starts in the front and the smaller fraction in the back.
- Also don't forget to leave the denominators the same.
- Remember that improper fraction answers need to be changed to mixed numbers.
