## How does adding fractions work?

To add fractions there are Three Simple Steps:

- Step 1: Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same.
- Step 2: Add the top numbers (the numerators), put that answer over the denominator.
- Step 3: Simplify the fraction (if possible)

### What is addition fraction with example?

For example: Add the fractions: 5/6 and 7/6. Since the denominators are same, therefore we can add the numerators directly. Hence, the sum of ⅚ and 7/6 is 2.

**What grade do you add fractions?**

Adding and subtracting fractions is typically introduced in 4th Grade and is limited to fractions with like denominators. In 5th Grade students then move on and use equivalent fractions to help add and subtract fractions that have different denominators.

**What grade level is adding mixed fractions?**

## How do you add and subtract fractions?

Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Different Denominators Find the lowest common denominator. Multiply the denominator by the number needed to get the LCD. Multiple the numerator by that number, too. Add (or subtract) the numerators to get your answer.

### What is a basic fraction?

Basic Fractions are the fractions which contain both numerator and denominator. In other terms simple fraction have numerator and denominator in the form of $\\frac{p}{q}$.

**How do you compare mixed fractions?**

To compare mixed numbers: First compare the whole numbers. When the whole numbers are the same, compare the fractions. If the denominators of the fractions are the same, compare the numerators. If the denominators are different, convert them to have least common denominator. Then compare the numerators.

**What is a fraction worksheet?**

Fraction worksheets include hundreds of printable handouts with exclusive pages in each sub topic. After the sub topics, you can find plenty of worksheets that include complete review of fractions.
