1.Add numerators — 8 Adding Fractions with Like Denominators = 1 12 ++ 2 12 5 12 8 12

1.Add numerators — 8 2.Reduce fraction to lowest possible terms if necessary — Adding Fractions with Like Denominators 8 12 = 1 12 ++ 2 12 5 12 8 12 = 2 3

1.Find lowest common denominator — 18 1313 5656 7979 = 18 Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators

7979 1.Find lowest common denominator — 18 2.Divide lowest common denominator by denominator of each fraction to find quotient 1313 5656 7979 = 18,, 1313 5656 = 18  3 = 6 = 18  6 = 3 = 18  9 = 2 Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators

3.Multiply numerators and denominators of each fraction by quotient to rewrite fraction Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators 1313 1  6 6 3  6 18 == 5656 5  3 15 6  3 18 == 7979 7  2 14 9  2 18 ==

4.Add numerators of rewritten fractions — 35 = 6 18 ++ 35 18 15 18 14 18 Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators

4.Add numerators of rewritten fractions — 35 5.Reduce fraction to lowest possible terms or convert improper fraction to mixed fraction if necessary — = 6 18 ++ 35 18 15 18 14 18 35 8 17 18 1 = Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators
