### Easiest of them all

## How to add fractions

Step 1 - you have to write the same denominator for the answer as in the question.

Step 2 - you have to add both numerators for the numerator of the answer.

Step 3 - simplify if needed

With different denominators

Step 1 - find the least common denominator and write it as the denominator.

Step 2 - whatever you multiplied your denominators by to get the least common denominators you multiply the numerators by.

Step 3 - you add both of the new numerators and get your answer.

Step 4 - simplify if needed
