## Adding and Subtracting Fractions

Step 1: First find the common denominator of the fractions

Step 2: Multiply the numbers that are in the common denominator to be the same

Step 3: Add or Subtract the numerator and the denominator to get the proper or improper answer

Step 4:Simplify the proper fraction until it can't be simplified anymore

Step 5: : Make sure your answer is in its simplest form

Step 6:You can add to see if you got your answer correct in subtraction

## Multiplying and Dividing Fractions

**Explanation: Multiplying Fractions**

**Step 1**: First simplify in the begining if you can

**Step 2**: Multiply the fractions to get your answer

**Step 3**: If you simplified in the beginning just multiply it

**Step 4**: Divide the answer to get your answer [divide even more if it can be simplified more]

**Step 5**: Make sure your answer is in its simplest form

** Steps for dividing fractions:**

**Step 1**: Write the promblem to solve it

**Step 2**: When dividing fractions you need to remeber these key words:keep,change,flip

**Step 3**: First keep the first fraction

**Step 4**: Second change the divison sign into a multipulcation

**Step 5**: Third flip the second fraction

**Step 6**: Finally multiply the numbers and then divide to get your answer

**Step 7**: Make sure your answer is in the simpliest form

## Multiplying decimals

**Steps:**

** Step1**:Write the numbers of the problem down.

**Step2**:When you write the numbers down you don't have to put the decimal exactly with the other number

**Step3**:After you put the decimal [that does not have to be in the same place]down for each number multiply normally

**Step4**:After you multiply the numbers, then count the decimal spaces in the numbers in each problem

**Step5**:After finding how many decimal places they are add up the total of the decimals

**Step6**:After finding the total of decimals in the problem then count the decimal spaces from the ones place until the decimal stops

## Dividing decimals

**Steps**

**Step1**:First write the problem down

**Step2**:Then move the decimal point to the right

**Step3**:After moving the decimal to the right, then divide the problem

**Step4**:Make sure that you divide correctly

**Step5**:Finally when you get your answer you can check your answer by creating a multiplication problem

## Adding and Subtracting Decimals

**Adding Steps**

**Step 1**: First write the problem down

**Step 2**: Then put the decimal exactly with the other number with the decimal

**Step 3:** Make sure you put the decimal in the correct spot because if you don't put it in the answer will be wrong

**Step 4:**After putting the decimal in the correct place then start to add the numbers up to get your answer to the problem

**Step 5:**After you found your answer to the problem, then bring the decimal down to the answer

**Subtracting Steps**

**Step 1:**First write the problem down

**Step 2:** Then put the decimal exactly with the other number with the decimal

**Step 3:** Make sure you put the decimal in the correct spot because if you don't put it in the answer will be wrong

**Step 4:**After putting the decimal in the correct place then start to subtract the numbers up to get your answer to the problem

**Step 5**:After you found your answer to the problem, then bring the decimal down to the answer
