### By: Kinjal Patel

Step 1- Find your denominators from both fractions

Step 2- List a couple multiples of your denominators

Step 3- Find 2 common multiples from both of your lists

Step 4- Multiply your numerators as many times as you multiplied the denominator to get a common denominator

Here is a game you can play to practice adding and subtracting fractions

## Subtracting

Step 1-List some common multiples of your denominators

Step 2- Find 2 common multiples

Step 3- Multiply you numerators as you did to the denominators to get a common denominator

## Multiplying Decimals

Step 1- Line up your numbers

Step 2- Start with your top number and multiply across from going right to left and multiply it by the right number on your bottom number

Step 3- Keep on multiplying across the top number right to left but then on the bottom number keep on multiplying left until your out of numbers

## Dividing Fractions

Step 1- Line up your numbers

Step 2- Make sure the decimal is always at the end for the number outside and move the decimal that many times on the inside number to and make sure to take your decimal and bring it up to the top

Step 3- Find how many times the number outside can go into the whole number inside and then subtract it

Step 4- With your left over amount(if you have any) drop down the number on the right of the decimal

Step 5- If you have a number left over but no more numbers to the right of the decimal then drop down a zero

Step 6- Keep on doing that until you have nothing left over

Step 1- Line up your numbers evenly

Step 2- Add your numbers like normal(up to down),but if you have a numbers that will be ten or greater than just add it to the next highest place value
