3 We need a common denominator to add these fractions.

4 7, 14, 21, 28, 35… 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 We need a common denominator to add these fractions.

5 7, 14, 21, 28, 35… 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 The first number IN COMMON that appears on both lists becomes the common denominator

6 x 2 X 7 x 7 7 6 7 + 6 = 13 13

7 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63

8 x 7 X 5 x 5 15 7 15 + 7 = 22 22

9 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72

10 x 7 x 8 32 21 32 + 21 = 53 53

11 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45

12 X 3 x 5 x 3 9 10 9 + 10 = 19 19

13 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77…

14 x 11 X 3 x 3 15 22 15 + 22 = 37 37

15 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27 6, 12, 18, 24,…

16 x 1 X 2 x 2 4 1 4 + 1 = 5 5

17 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77… 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72

18 x 11 X 6 x 6 18 11 29 18 + 11 = 29

19 We need a common denominator to add these fractions.

20 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45

21 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 The first number IN COMMON that appears on both lists becomes the common denominator

22 x 5 x9 36 35 36 + 35 = 71 71 36 + 35 = 71

23 We need a common denominator to add these fractions. 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 79, 80, 88, 96

24 x 3 x 2 19 10 + 9 = 19 9 10

25 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55 We need a common denominator to subtract a fraction from another. 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77…

26 x 5 x 11 4 15 - 11 = 4 15 11

27 We need a common denominator to subtract one fraction from another. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 … 10, 20, 30…

28 x 1 x 5 2 5 – 3 = 2 5 3
