**Add and Subtract Fractions**

A Common Multiple is a number that is a multiple of two or more numbers. Some multiples of 3 & 6 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 copyright©amberpasillas2010

5
**Add and Subtract Fractions**

The LCM is the smallest multiple that two numbers have in common. 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 6 = 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36 copyright©amberpasillas2010

**To Add or Subtract Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

Add and Subtract Fractions To Add or Subtract Fractions With Unlike Denominators Compare your lists. Which multiples do 5 and 10 have in common? 1 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 1 + 10 = 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 copyright©amberpasillas2010

8
**To Add or Subtract Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

Add and Subtract Fractions To Add or Subtract Fractions With Unlike Denominators Use the lowest common multiple as the denominator. 1 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 1 + 10 = 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 copyright©amberpasillas2010

**Add and Subtract Fractions**

SHORTCUT: Check to see if the smaller denominator divides evenly into the larger denominator. If it does, use the larger denominator for your LCD or LCM. 1 5 will divide evenly into 10, so 10 is your denominator. 5 1 + 10 copyright©amberpasillas2010

11
**1 5 10 1 + 10 10 Add and Subtract Fractions**

Rewrite the fractions using the least common denominator or least common multiple. 1 5 10 1 + 10 10 copyright©amberpasillas2010

12
**Add and Subtract Fractions**

Find the equivalent fractions for 1/5 & 1/10 with 10 as the denominator. You know that 1/10 is equal to 1/10 so Put a 1 over the Denominator of 10. 1 5 10 1 1 + 10 10 copyright©amberpasillas2010

13
**Add and Subtract Fractions**

Find the equivalent fractions for 1/5 & 1/10 with 10 as the denominator. To find the top number, ask yourself what do you multiply the 5 by to get 10. 1 5 10 1 1 + 10 10 copyright©amberpasillas2010

14
**Add and Subtract Fractions**

Find the equivalent fractions for 1/5 & 1/10 with 10 as the denominator. 2 Since you are looking for the equivalent fraction you know the numerator must also be multiplied by 2. 1 x 2 = 5 10 x 2 1 1 + 10 10 copyright©amberpasillas2010

15
**2 1 5 10 1 1 + 10 10 Now just add the numerators. x 2 = x 2**

Add and Subtract Fractions Now just add the numerators. Remember when adding fractions you never add the denominators. 2 1 x 2 = 5 10 x 2 1 1 + 10 10 3 10 copyright©amberpasillas2010

16
**Add and Subtract Fractions**

Identity Property states that any number multiplied by one equals itself This is useful to know so you can find a common denominator for adding and subtracting fractions.
