**Add or Subtract Fractions with Unlike Denominators**

2
**Review: Common Multiple**

A number that is a multiple of two or more numbers. Common Multiples of 3 & 6: 3: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24… 6: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42…

3
**Review: Least Common Multiple**

The smallest common multiple of a set of two or more numbers. 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 6 = 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36

4
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

Step 1: Find the multiples of each denominator. 1 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 1 + 10 = 10, 20, 30, 40, 50

5
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

Step 2: Determine the LCD. (Remember the LCD = LCM) 1 5 = 5, 10, 15 ,20 ,25 ,30 1 + 10 = 10, 20, 30, 40, 50

6
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

Step 3: Make equivalent fractions using the LCD as the new denominator. 1 = 5 10 1 = + 10 10

7
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

You know that 1/10 is equal to 1/10 so Put a 1 over the Bottom 10. 1 = 5 10 1 1 = + 10 10

8
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

To find the top number, ask yourself what do you multiply the 5 by to get 10. 1 5 10 1 1 + 10 10

9
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

That’s right 2. And we know that if we multiply by 2 at the bottom then we must also multiply by 2 at the top. 1 2 x 2 = 5 10 x 2 = 1 1 + 10 10

10
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

Step 4: Add/subtract the numerators and keep the denominators the same. 1 2 = 5 10 Remember when adding fractions the denominators always stay the same!!!!! 1 1 = + + 10 10 3 10

11
**Adding Fractions With Unlike Denominators**

Step 5: Check to make sure your answer is in simplest form. 3: 1 x 3 10: 1 x 10 2 x 5 3 10 Common Factors: 1 3/10 is in simplest form

12
**2 5 15 1 + 3 15 Add these Fractions Find the common Multiples for**

5 and 3. Write This number As your new denominator. 2 5 15 1 + 3 15 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 3 = 3, 6, 9, 12, 15

13
**2 5 15 1 + 3 15 Add these Fractions x 3 = x 5 = Ask yourself what you**

multiply the bottom number by to get 15. 2 5 15 x 3 = 1 + 3 x 5 = 15

14
**2 6 5 15 1 5 + 3 15 Add these Fractions x 3 = x 3 = x 5 = x 5 =**

Multiply the top number by the same number you did in the bottom. 2 6 x 3 = 5 15 x 3 = 1 5 x 5 = + 3 x 5 = 15

15
**2 6 5 15 1 5 + 3 15 11 15 Add these Fractions x 3 = x 3 = x 5 = x 5 =**

Now, add your new numerators. 2 6 x 3 = 5 15 x 3 = 1 5 x 5 = + 3 x 5 = 15 11 15

16
**1 2 6 12 1 3 + 4 12 5 12 Add these Fractions x 2 = x 2 = x 3 = x 3 =**

Is this fraction in simplest form? 12

17
**5 20 6 24 1 3 + 8 24 23 24 Add these Fractions x 4 = x 4 = x 3 = x 3 =**

Is this fraction in simplest form? 24

18
**2 6 3 9 1 1 + 9 9 7 9 Add these Fractions x 3 = x 3 = x 1 = x 1 =**

Is this fraction in simplest form? 9

19
**4 12 5 15 2 10 + 3 15 22 15 Add these Fractions x 3 = x 3 = x 5 =**

Is this fraction in simplest form? 15

**Word Problem Practice:**

Mrs. Walker graded 2/3 of the class’ math test and then stopped to take a phone call. When she returned, she graded 1/6 of the math test. What amount of the math test has she graded? 2/ /6 = Mrs. Andrea is planning on having her art classes paint a picture. She will need 1/5 of a gallon of paint for her first period art class and 2/3 of a gallon for her second period art class. How much paint will be needed in all? 1/ /3 =

22
**1 3 1 + 9 Check to see if the smaller denominator**

Shortcut for Finding the Least Common Denominator or Least Common Multiple 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 3 will divide evenly into 9, so 9 is your LCD or LCM. 3 1 + 9

23
**1 2 8 1 + 8 8 Add these Fractions Use the short cut to find the**

Least Common Denominator (LCD). 1 2 8 1 + 8 8

24
**1 2 8 1 + 8 8 Add these Fractions x 4 = x 1 = Now find the equivalent**

fractions for 1/2 & 1/8. 1 2 8 x 4 = 1 + 8 x 1 = 8 Ask what do you multiply 2 by to get 8 and what do you multiply 8 by to get 8.

25
**1 2 8 1 + 8 8 Add these Fractions x 4 = x 4 = x 1 = x 1 =**

Since you are writing equivalent fractions, now multiply the top numbers by the same number you did in the bottom. 1 x 4 = 2 8 x 4 = 1 x 1 = + 8 x 1 = 8

26
**1 4 2 8 1 1 + 8 8 Add these Fractions x 4 = x 4 = x 1 = x 1 =**

Now multiply across. x 4 = 2 8 x 4 = 1 1 x 1 = + 8 x 1 = 8

27
**1 4 2 8 1 1 + 8 8 5 8 Add these Fractions x 4 = x 4 = x 1 = x 1 =**

Add your new numerators. x 4 = 2 8 x 4 = 1 1 x 1 = + 8 x 1 = 8 5 8

**Subtracting Fractions With Unlike Denominators:**

Follow the same 5 steps that you did to add fractions with unlike denominators. Step 1: Find the multiples of each denominator. Step 2: Determine the LCD. Step 3: Make equivalent fractions using the LCD as the new denominator. Step 4: Add/subtract the numerators and keep the denominators the same. Step 5: Check to make sure your answer is in simplest form.

31
**Subtract these Fractions**

Ask yourself what you multiply the bottom number by to get 10. 3 5 10 x 2 = 1 - 2 x 5 = 10

32
**Subtract these Fractions**

Multiply the top number by the same number you did in the bottom. 3 6 x 2 = 5 10 x 2 = 1 5 x 5 = - 2 x 5 = 10
