**Adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions**

Amie Schneider Teacher page

**Adding Fractions- Step 1-**

Make sure both the fractions have a common denominator. Example- 1/3 + 1/6 = ? ^Not the same^ Find a common denominator Multiply 1/3 by 2 on the top and bottom (2)(1) = 2 (2)(3) = 6 New fraction = 2/6

3
**Adding Fractions- Step 2-**

Now having common denominators we can add the fractions Only add the numerators (top) 2/6 + 1/6 = 2 + 1 = 3 Denominator remains 6 Answer 3/6

4
**Adding Fractions- Step 3- If possible simplify your answer =**

Does 3/6 equal something else? Find the greatest common factor 3/6 = 1/2 because the GCF was 3 3 ÷ 3 = 1 and 6 ÷ 3 = 2 =

5
**Subtracting Fractions-**

Step 1- Make sure the denominator are the same Example- 1/2 - 1/10 = ? ^Not the same^ Find a common denominator Multiply 1/2 by 5 (1)(5) = 5 (2)(5) = 10 New fraction = 5/10

6
**Subtracting Fractions-**

Step 2- Now that we have common denominators we can subtract! Only subtract the numerators. Example- 5/10 – 1/10 = ? 5 – 1 = 4 Denominator remains 10 Answer – 4/10

7
**Subtracting Fractions-**

Step 3- If possible simplify your answer. Does 4/10 equal something else? Find the greatest common factor 4/10 = 2/5 because the GCF is 2 4 ÷ 2 = 2 and 10 ÷ 2 = 5

8
**Multiplying Fractions-**

Step 1- Multiply the numerators Example- 1/2 x 2/5 = ? 1 x 2 = 2 *This time we don’t need a common denominator!

9
**Multiplying Fractions-**

Step 2- Multiply the denominators Example- 1/2 x 2/5 = ? 2 x 5 = 10

10
**Multiplying Fractions-**

Step 3- If possible simplify your answer Answer – 2/10 Find the greatest common factor 2/10 = 1/5 because the GCF is 2 2 ÷ 2 = 1 and 10 ÷ 2 = 5

11
**Dividing Fractions- Step 1-**

“Skip, Change, Flip” Don’t change the first fraction – Skip Change the ÷ to a x - Change Flip the second fraction upside down (the reciprocal)- Flip Example- 1/3 ÷ 2/4 becomes 1/3 x 4/2

12
**Dividing Fractions- Step 2- Answer- 4/6 Multiply the numerators**

1 x 4 = 4 Multiply the denominators 3 x 2 = 6 Answer- 4/6

13
**Dividing Fractions- Step 3- If possible simplify your answer**

Find greatest common factor Answer- 4/6 4/6 = 2/3 because the GCF is 2 4 ÷ 2 = 2 and 6 ÷ 2 = 3

14
