Fractions

ADDING FRACTIONS  Build each fraction so that the denominators are the same  ADD the numerators  Place the sum of the two numerators on top of the common denominator  REDUCE or SIMPLIFY Examples from teacher

SUBTRACTING FRACTIONS  Build each fraction so that both denominators are the same  Rewrite each equivalent fraction  SUBTRACT the numerators  Place the difference of the two numerators on top of the common denominator  REDUCE or SIMPLIFY  Examples from teacher

MULTIPLYING FRACTIONS  Multiply the numerators  Multiply the denominators  REDUCE OR SIMPLIFY  Examples from teacher

DIVIDING FRACTIONS  Change the ÷ (division sign) to a multiplication sign and invert (flip) the fraction to the right of the sign  Multiply the numerators  Multiply the denominators  REDUCE or SIMPLIFY  Examples from teacher

COMPARING FRACTIONS  Find a common denominator  Make equivalent fractions with the new denominator  Compare the numerators  Examples from teacher
