 The numerator is top # in a fraction. Example: 2/4 Numerator

 The bottom # of a fraction. Example: 1/6 Denominator

 Equivalent fractions are 2 or more fractions  that are equal.  Example; 1/2=2/4=3/6  = =

 Mixed #’s have wholes and parts of a whole.  You get a mixed # from an improper fraction.  Example: 2 1/2

 An improper fraction is where the numerator is bigger than the denominator.  Example: 20/17

 When adding fractions add only the numerators.  Example:2/4+1/4=3/4

 When subtracting fractions subtract only the numerator. Example: 2/3 -1/3=

 When multiplying fractions you multiply both the numerators together. Then multiply both denominators.  Example: ½ x1/2= 1/4

 When dividing fractions, multiply the divisor by the reciprocal of the dividend.  Example: 2/3 ¾  2/3 X 4/3 = 8/9

 1. 4/5- 2/5=  2. 9/10-2/10=  3. 10/12 + 1/12=  4. 1/5+3/5=

 1. 1/6 x 3/6=  2. 3/4 x 1/4=  3. 4/5 1/5=  4. 12/20 1/20=
