## First Trick to Adding Unlike Denominators

Look at the SMALLEST denominator and ask "Can I get the LARGER DENOMINATOR IF I MULTIPLY?"

2/8 + 1/4

4/5 + 1/15

## Second Trick to Adding with Unlike Denominators

Find the LEAST COMMOM DENOMINATOR (LCD).

To find the least common denominator, simply list the multiples of each denominator (multiply by 2, 3, 4, etc. out to about 6 or seven usually works) then look for the smallest number that appears in each list.

Example: Suppose we wanted to add 1/5 + 1/6 + 1/15. We would find the least common denominator as follows…

• First we list the multiples of each denominator.
Multiples of 5 are 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40,…
Multiples of 6 are 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48,…
Multiples of 15 are 30, 45, 60, 75, 90,….
• Now, when you look at the list of multiples, you can see that 30 is the smallest number that appears in each list.
• Therefore, the least common denominator of 1/5, 1/6 and 1/15 is 30.

## 3rd Trick to Adding with Unlike Denominators

Multiply the two denominators together.

3/4 + 2/3

1/2 + 3/5

## STEPS TO REDUCING FRACTIONS

EXAMPLE - 6/12 = 1/2

1. ASK YOURSELF "IS THE NUMERATOR HALF OF THE DENOMINATOR.

IF "YES" THE FRACTION WILL REDUCE TO 1/2.

EXAMPLE - 4/12 = 1/3

2. ASK YOURSELF IF THE NUMERATOR WILL DIVIDE INTO THE DENOMINATOR.

IF "YES" DIVIDE BOTH THE NUMERATOR AND DENOMINATOR BY THAT NUMBER.

4 4 1

12 4 3

EXAMPLE - 6/8 = 3/4

3. IF 1 & 2 DO NOT WORK THEN YOU HAVE TO FIND THE "GREATEST COMMON FACTOR" THAT WILL GO INTO THE NUMERATOR AND DENOMINATOR.

6 2 3

8 2 4
