5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators
Course 1 5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators 1 3 __ The Pacific Ocean covers of Earth’s surface. The Atlantic Ocean covers of Earth’s surface. To find the fraction of the Earth’s surface that is covered by both oceans, you can add and , which are unlike fractions. 1 5 __ 1 3 __ 1 5 __

5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators
Course 1 5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators To add or subtract unlike fractions, first rewrite them as equivalent fractions with a common denominator. Remember! Fractions that represent the same value are equivalent.

Additional Example 1: Cooking Application
Course 1 5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators Additional Example 1: Cooking Application Mark made a pizza with pepperoni covering of the pizza and onions covering another What fraction of the pizza is covered by pepperoni or onions? 1 4 __ 1 3 __ 1 4 __ 3 Add + ? 1 4 __ 3 1 4 __ 1 3 __ + _____ Find a common denominator for 4 and 3. 1 4 __

Course 1 5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators Try This: Example 1 Tori made a pizza with peppers covering of the pizza and ham covering another What fraction of the pizza is covered by ham or peppers? 1 3 __ 1 2 __ 1 3 __ 2 Add + 1 3 __ 1 2 __ 1 3 __ ? 1 2 __ + _____ Find a common denominator for 3 and 2.

Try This: Example 1 Continued
Course 1 5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators Try This: Example 1 Continued 1 3 __ 2 6 __ Write equivalent fractions with 6 as the common denominator. 1 2 __ 3 6 __ Add the numerators. Keep the common denominator. + _______ _____ 5 6 __ 1 3 __ 2 6 5 6 __ The peppers or ham cover of the pizza.

Course 1 5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators You can use any common denominator or the least common denominator to add and subtract unlike fractions. The least common denominator (LCD) is the least common multiple of the denominators.

Additional Example 2A: Adding and Subtracting Unlike Fractions
Course 1 5-7 Adding and Subtracting with Unlike Denominators Additional Example 2A: Adding and Subtracting Unlike Fractions Add or Subtract. Write each answer in simplest form. Method 1: Multiplying denominators. A – 7 10 __ 3 8 __ 7 10 __ 3 8 __ Multiply the denominators. 10 • 8 = 80 56 80 __ 30 80 __ Write equivalent fractions. 26 80 __ Subtract. 13 40 __ Write the answer in simplest form.
