A fraction is simplified when the numerator and the denominator have no common factors. Simplify: 1) 20 2) 32 3) 245 55 80 350

4
Multiply across the numerators and denominators. Reduce if possible. EX: Multiply 1) 6 · 7 2) 3 · 10 13 17 8 11

To divide, multiply by the RECIPROCAL In other words, FLIP the 2 nd fraction and multiply. EX: Divide 1) 5 ÷ 10 2) 3 ÷ 30 11 17 8

6
Before you can add or subtract, you must have a common denominator! Once both fractions are in terms of the LCD, add or subtract the numerators only. EX: Add or Subtract 1) 2 + 5 2) 3 - 7 3 7 8 12
