## How do you add like and unlike fractions?

If the **denominators** are not the **same**, then you have to use equivalent **fractions** which do have a common denominator. To do this, you need to find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two **denominators**. To **add fractions** with **unlike denominators**, rename the **fractions** with a common denominator. Then **add** and simplify.

## How do you add unlike fractions step by step?

If you’re working with improper **fractions** where the numerators are larger than the **denominators**, make the **denominators** the same. Then **add** the numerators. If you’re **adding** mixed numbers, turn them into improper **fractions** and make each **fraction** equivalent. This will make it easy to **add** the **fractions** together.

## What is proper fraction with example?

A **proper fraction** is a **fraction** which has its numerator value less than the **denominator**. For **example**, ⅔, 6/7, 8/9, etc. are **proper fractions**.

## How do you solve unlike fractions examples?

**Let us consider some of the examples of adding unlike fractions:**

**Add**12, 23 and 47. Solution: Let us find the LCM of the**denominators**2, 3 and 7.**Add**78 and 910. Solution: The L.C.M. of the**denominators**8 and 10 is 40.**Add**16 and 512. Solution: Let L.C.M. of the**denominators**6 and 12 is 12.**Add**23, 115 and 56.

## How do you simplify fraction?

**How to Reduce Fractions**

- Write down the factors for the numerator and the denominator.
- Determine the largest factor that is common between the two.
- Divide the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor.
- Write down the reduced
**fraction**.

## How do you add fractions on a calculator?

**How to Add or Subtract Fractions**

- Find the least common denominator.
- You can use the LCD
**Calculator**to find the least common denominator for a set of**fractions**. - For your first
**fraction**, find what number you need to multiply the denominator by to result in the least common denominator.

## What is vulgar fraction explain with example?

• a **fraction** where the numerator and the denominator. are both integers (not **fractions**). **EXAMPLES**: © Jenny Eather 2014.

## What is proper fraction?

: a **fraction** in which the numerator is less or of lower degree than the denominator.

## What are the examples of mixed fraction?

A **fraction** represented with its quotient and remainder is a **mixed fraction**. For **example**, 2 1/3 is a **mixed fraction**, where 2 is the quotient, 1 is the remainder. So, a **mixed fraction** is a combination of a whole number and a proper **fraction**.

## How do you add and multiply fractions?

Find the new numerator of the first **fraction**.

The numerator is the number above the **fraction** bar. To find the new numerator, compare the original denominator to the LCD. Determine what factor you have to **multiply** the original denominator by to get to the LCD. Then, **multiply** the numerator by this same factor.

## How do you add a whole number and a fraction?

- To
**add**mixed**numbers**, we first**add**the**whole numbers**together, and then the**fractions**. - If the denominators of the
**fractions**are different, then first find equivalent**fractions**with a common denominator before**adding**. **Subtracting**mixed**numbers**is very similar to**adding**them.

## How do you figure out unlike fractions?

When the **Denominators** are **Unlike** or Different

We find the Least Common Denominator (LCD) then rewrite all **fractions** in the **equation** as equivalent **fractions** using the LCD as the denominator. When all **denominators** are alike, simply add or subtract the numerators and place the result over the common denominator.
