Next slide Previous slide Addition Subtraction Multiplication Copyright © Pearson Australia (a division of Pearson Australia Group Pty Ltd) Division Challenge 1 2 3 Click for practice questions 1. Simplify Step 1: Write down the question. Step 2: If the denominator is not the same find the lowest common multiple (LCM). 20 is the LCM for 4 and 5 Step 3: Adjust the numerators to match the new common denominator. Step 4: Add the numerators. 20 ÷ 4 × x20 ÷ 5 × 2 x Click for a harder addition question.
