Adding and Subtracting Mixed Numbers Objective: Learn to add and subtract mixed numbers.

To add and subtract mixed numbers:  Example 2: 7 4 9 + 10 2 9______ Steps: 1. First add or subtract the fractions. 2. If necessary, change them using the Least common denominator (LCD). 3. Then add or subtract the whole numbers. 4. Simplify if necessary. Example 1: 5 6 7 - 3 1 2___

Borrowing:  When subtracting fractions, if the numerator in the first fraction is smaller than the second fraction’s numerator, you will have to borrow.  When borrowing you have to take one away from the whole number. Then you will add the same amount in the denominator to the numerator.  Then you may subtract normally. For Example: 9 1 5 - 4 3 4______ 8 - 3 2 5___

 Examples: 8 5 + 6 2 1 4_____ 7 _ 3 2 8 5 1 4 - 1 3 5_____

Homework: Add or Subtract. Simplify. 1) 2 1 9 + 7 4 9_______ 2) 9 4 5 + 2 3 10_______ 3) 11 3 4 - 4 1 3______ 4 ) 5 3 10 _ 1 3 4______ 5) 24 - 8 3 4______ 6) 16 - 5 5 6_______ 7) 5 1 5 + 2 3 10_____ 8) 6 1 3 - 2 3 5_____ 9)7 3 4 + 2 2 3_______ 10) 8 3 4 + 6 2 5_____
