## Adding Fractions

Here are a few easy steps to get you going on fraction adding.

## The Problem Say your adding 6/4+5/3 the denominator is different. This means we need to find the least common denominator or l.c.d. | ## Changing The denominator 4x3=12 So our new denominator will be 12 | ## Change What ever you do on the bottom you have to do to the top so 6 would be 18 and and 5 would be 20 |

## The Problem

Say your adding 6/4+5/3 the denominator is different. This means we need to find the least common denominator or l.c.d.

## Step 4

Now add the top #s and keep the denominator the same

## The Problem Now we are subtracting 1/3-2 4/6 | ## L.c.d. Now for the least common denominator. In this case 4/6 is = to 2/3. So 1/3-2/3= 1/3 + 2 = .... | ## 2 1/3 Two and one third! Now you can try your self bye. |

## Multiplication & Division

Multiplication and division are a bit more tricky. They have more steps and require more knowledge.

## The Problem For this MULTIPLICATION problem start bye writing out 5/6x6/11=__ | ## Multiplying Multiply the numerators and the denominators. Put the denominator answer on the bottom and the numerator awswer on the top. Simplify your answer if possible. | ## Getting the Answer This is what your final product should look like. |

## Multiplying

Multiply the numerators and the denominators. Put the denominator answer on the bottom and the numerator awswer on the top. Simplify your answer if possible.

## G.C.F

Greatest common factor is the strategy for dividing too, but I recommend Keep change flip.
